rysmiel is ever such a good host - Livre d'Or

I've just come back to New York after spending the last few days in Montreal. It went something like this: hugs, yummy food (Greek), hugshugshugs, patisserie, cool stuff (geodesic structure), yummy food (crême brulée), cool stuff (art museum), tea, music, yummy food (sushi), hugs, yummy food (decadent hot chocolate), booksbooksbooksbooksbooksbooks, teeeeeeeeeeeeeea, yummy food (Peruvian), hugs, music, hugs, fantastically cute animals (culminating in PENGUINS), cool stuff (Chinatown, gay district with rainbows everywhere), yummy food (Italian), cool stuff (fantastically elaborate church), icecream, hugshugshugs, yummy food (sushi)... Only with more hugs, and with lots of really wonderful conversation going on at the same time as all this, and I've probably got some of the cool things slightly in the wrong order. If it were possible to explode from joy, I wouldn't be here writing this now.
Added 14.8.05: rysmiel has a rather more comprehensive account, (which is also much funnier than mine).
In fact, I am here, back chez hatam_soferet and having a nice relaxing day. The journey back yesterday was not the loveliest (a two hour delay on a journey that's already 10 hours, and then stupid problems with the subway followed by getting rained on felt like the last straw), but I had bookies, and hatam_soferet had very thoughtfully left food for me in case I did get back late. She's also being very understanding about my wanting to go online even though she doesn't do computers on shabbat.

Need to finalize plans for the next few days – redbird and jpallan (and New A WINOLJ), you should get sorting out messages soon.

Yes, rysmiel is indeed an excellent host and good company, and Montreal is a fine place to be in Montreal with a friend or three.

*hug* Glad to hear you are there safe and sound, I was not checking until well after sundown precisely because of hatam_soferet's preference. Looking forward to seeing what you read and what you thought thereof. And yay pai mu tan, along with all the other cool stuff. [ After this summer, I'm going to need a "cool things to do in Montreal for people who have already done the Montreal-in-three-days trip"; will start guinea-pigging that this autumn.

Oh, I'm glad of that. I was kind of kicking myself that I'd forgotten to tell you that I probably wouldn't get online until Sunday, but you figured this out anyway, and in fact it turned out not to be the case.

Looking forward to seeing what you read and what you thought thereof.
I think The color of light is absolutely stunning, many many thanks for that. I have posted a review in which I completely fail to articulate why I'm so very impressed with that book, but that may give you some idea of the direction I'm thinking in.

And yay pai mu tan
Very much yay. I was going to ask you to remind me the name so I could have a hope of finding it again.

along with all the other cool stuff
I'm in a state of being rather overwhelmed by just how much cool stuff you managed to fit into three days. So this is more a post intended to convey overwhelmed than anything else; I'm still working on actually recounting it properly, rather than just bouncing around grining and PENGUINS!

After this summer, I'm going to need a "cool things to do in Montreal for people who have already done the Montreal-in-three-days trip"
That sounds a really excellent thing to be planning. Yay.

Your link here appears to be going to your review of The Color of Light rather than to my post.

Fixed, thanks! I usually try to check my links but there's always a couple that slip through.
