I almost forgot to take a picture of my car today. After a white-knuckle drive through pelting rain between Quebec City and Montreal, I was glad to hand it, and its keys, over to the guys in the parking lot across from my hotel. I remembered in the twilight to grab a quick shot of it (the parking lot guys think I’m nuts) et voilà.
I decided to splurge on a hotel for these two nights in Montreal. I am coming down with a sore throat – ack! – and hope that hot baths and lots of sleep will cure me – hence the hotel rather than begging for a spot on a friend or family member’s sofa.
I love my hotel! It’s seedy on the outside – the entrance is through an abandoned pizzeria while the lobby is under renovation – but my room is absolutely plush. And it’s one block away from the venue I’m playing tomorrow night: Grumpy’s, 1242 rue Bishop! 9:30 start. See you there.
