    I have tried to order for plenty of bar maids who did not know a lick of English.
    Anyway I could always get someone to order me an extra dry Beefeater Martini straight up with olives in French.

    By the goat/sheep brains are pretty tasty. My wife was eating them in Israel one night and did not have a clue. They were cooked in an iron skillet made in the shape of the brain with plenty of butter and garlic. Out of this world.

    No we were in the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. We were quests of the chef and the Tourism department. No menus just eat the dishes set before you. We were there for 4 or 5 hours, eating talking and drinking. Fantastic!
    I used to take tour groups to the Holy Lands. One of the perks.

    I would take Montreal over Quebec city any day. I love Montreal.

    As others have mentioned, Parking is a nightmare.

    When I stayed at the Intercontinental, however, there was tons of underground parking. Safe(er) and secure. Parking is actually for the Montreal World Trade Centre, but hotel guests park there too.
    This Hotel is nice, and puts you in very good walking distance of "chinatown", old Montreal, and Notre Dame.

    Most other urban hotels have no parking for cars, let alone a trailer.

    Food, I don't eat meat, and Montreal is fantastic for people like me.

    Border Crossing: no idea what crossing with a trailer will entail for you, sorry, but our border lines typically hover around 20 minutes, sometimes 0, rarely over an hour.
    Pro-tip: be completely on the level. Our border guards have zero sense of humour, neither do yours.

    Buy the best damn hitch-lock you can find. Quebec and Montreal are notorious for trailer theft. I could spew a list of bands that have come out to their van in the morning to find either an empty trailer, a missing trailer, or even a missing van and trailer. A trailer in Montreal is like a bat signal to thieves. I know one band that actually stationed a band member in the van over night, and STILL came out to a missing trailer in the morning. When we played Montreal last spring, we literally carried all of our gear up to our hotel rooms at night. So yeah, good locks, lock the trailer to the truck, if you can back the trailer up to a wall.

    Oh, and have fun! je n'parles pas francais, tu parles englais?
