Back from the hospital (after coming off the bike here in Montreal, just cycling in to town and hitting a pot hole) with 3 stitches in my chin, a few cuts and grazes, but OK, and the bike’s OK too, and the laptop which was on my back at the time survived since I’m using it now. Just spent my last couple of dollars on a baguette and then had to pay for a glass of water in order to use this internet cafe – they wouldn’t let me sit here and use their internet connection without spending money.
I’ve just uploaded some more video – still way behind on that though. Didn’t get a chance to do as much as I would have liked here in Montreal. Too many distractions. But the videos are from what I’ve called Day 6 and Day 7, which dates back to 17th and 18th July when I was cycling across New Brunswick, heading for the Maine, USA border.
For the other videos see my LegJoints page.
Will hopefully be heading off towoards Gattineau/Ottawa tomorrow. Need to properly check over the bike first, but I’ve been in Montreal for almost a week now and time is passing. It’s already tomorrow back in Britain and will soon be the middle of August everywhere, and after that comes the end of August, and then September, but the further West I go the earlier it gets.
Now I need to eat. I’ve just bought a baguette and have some paté, salami, tomatoes (quite a luxury out here at $1.69 per pound) and cheese in the fridge in my room so I’ll be having a late night feast. I also have a large box of peanuts and some fruit. Unfortunately I finished off the last of the chocolate croissants this morning.
