Day 2 in this city. Today, I explored my surroundings, and to my pleasure I found that there is a Metro and Shoppers Drug Mart (they call it Pharmaprix here in Quebec) right by where I live! Also, it seems that St. Joseph’s Oratory is in my backyard.
After 2 tries I successfully (I think) acquired a weekly bus pass. Apparently, in Montreal it goes something like this, first you must have an OPUS card, then you “load” trip plans onto the OPUS card, here I am, thinking it will be a paper pass, I tried to purchase a weekly plan at Shoppers without the OPUS card, and the kicker, the cashier spoke only French, so that was no go, then second try, after more researching, I found out that I needed the OPUS card first, with some broken French and half mixed English, I was able to acquire an OPUS card and a weekly pass.
I need to learn French.
Work is interesting, never the less, busy, hectic, and I’m just getting the round of thing. I get to work Downtown which makes commuting easier.
