"NOT EXACTLY IN MONTREAL BUT VERY NEAR" Montreal Local Custom Tip by RafaelTheSecond

Montreal Local Customs: 198 reviews and 216 photos

  The best medicine for the cold weather: CHIMARRÃO!
by RafaelTheSecond

In one of my trips to the canadian way of life I could really experience severe cold conditions, well, it is Canada and Canada naver plays games when it comes for Winter....Outside with teh moon and the stars it was about -32, and inside thanks to MY OLD AND DEAR FIRE PLACE and my sugarless tea MATE AMARGO, I managed to survive, and in the house, to be precise, Pierre's House in Lake Mitchel, it was around 10 celcius...It was hard when the fire died, and I woke up in the night shaking until the last hair of my head!!!!

But it was fun and for sure I will do again and again!
