Montreal observations

* The weekly metro pass runs Monday-Sunday, not 7 days from purchase. Oops.
* The subway is every 5-10 minutes from like 5am to 1am. Beats Boston or even some NYC lines. The buses, though... I was deceived by staying near the 24, which does run every 10 minutes until 9pm, but most other lines seem more like 20-30 minutes.
* Supermarkets seem scarce, though I did find one today. (A proper one. Google Maps calls various things "supermarkets" that are lame corner/convenience stores.) It has many varieties of brie and Camembert for sale. Lots of smaller stores, quality ranging from "seriously meh" to "ooh, nice produce!"
* Apparently no whole milk, just 0, 1, 2, and 3.25% fat.
* Yogurt without gelatin! ...not as good as TJ/Strauss "European style". I may try "Balkan style" after I finish this one.
* Montreal has Uber and no Lyft, and no UberPool. I'm told Toronto has Lyft, I forget if it has Pool.
* My front door is literally flanked by maple trees.
