Old Montreal is European and some central neighborhoods have high-end Victorian flair. But most residential neighborhoods east and west of downtown are rundown and depressing.Was watching this Russian blogger /truck driver filming some neighborhood in Montreal. The place didn't seem very inspiring. Guess I instinctively felt Montreal would be more European and sexier looked like a typically rundown US neighborhood. ...maybe he was just in a shit area
I know you were not talking about the climate but will California be the same without its mild climate and coastline? Will the vibe be the same? Yes, there are a lot of other ingredients that make California for what it is but even for a superficial equivalence to another place, you need some sort of semblance in climate as a baseline. With global warming, maybe there will be a mini-California in Canada. But then, it's all subjective - people do feel differently about the same place. Yeah I am intense.Vaggers, I wasn’t talking about climate. Bonder, are you a pretty serious chap in real life?
