FINALLY OUT OF MONTREAL. I MANAGED TO FORGET MY TOOTHBRUSH AND SUNGLASSES.
It's extremely humid out here in New York, but I really wouldn't want to have it any other way. It's so quiet here, I finally feel like I have space to think without needing any extra help to do so. I can hear the trains, that's just how quiet it is. I really love that. It's super weird to not see any of the signs in French. Actually it's weird to not see anything in French.
If you're familiar with my Goodreads, I really do have a lot of catching up to do. I didn't get a chance to finish And Still the Earth before I left, but I only have like thirty pages to get back to when I get home. I'm eleven pages into 1Q84, and I'm really into it. My plan of braving the subway basically involves getting as absorbed into this book as possible. I still have a few more books and articles to finish reviewing, so I'll be updating sporadically throughout my trip. Can't turn my brain off.
