Montréal en trois temps

| | Comments (0)

Dernière d'une série de trois, voici un tracé de la provenance des contributions faites aux partis politiques et associations de circonscription en 2009. L'outil d'où proviennent ces captures d'écran sera publié tard vendredi soir, heure de l'est. Samedi matin, la surprise sortira.

Contributions aux conservateurs 2009 - région de Montréal
Parti conservateur

Contributions aux libéraux 2009 - région de Montréal
Parti libéral

Contributions aux bloquistes - région de Montréal
Bloc Québécois

(Les dons au NPD et au Parti vert dans la région métropolitaine sont trop minimes pour être montrés ici.)

Metros from the world

Got at!
I rarely do this sort of thing, but metros, how can I resist? It's from Metros from the world. Seriously, there's something attractive about this activity. Of course, it's to say "oh I've been to this city!", but subways are the foreign daily life cool that, if you're in a certain category of tourist, will want to do. Idem for supermarkets and cinemas, and beaches.

Got tagged! Since I can choose which blog, let's say the current one, the MT blog:

A grandiose flying-away, on my own, to Japan, a stopover between here and Wonderlandu, a buffer between Occident and Orient.

5th sentence from my 23rd entry, back in March 2005. It was three weeks before leaving for Asia, to Japan, on my way to HK, before the true beginning of wacky adventures in the land of yellow people. The trip was special, indeed. I talked about it a lot, yet I feel as if I didn't really talk about it. Probably b/c there aren't so many people who can relate somewhat precisely with what I experienced. So, you know, coming from a place where you don't have any ancestral roots, and going on a long trip to discover the world, somehow. It's not exactly home, but people look like you, speak in the language which you, as a child, was the only language you knew (a combination of environmental determinisms would then make me totally fluent in French or English - but I struggle to have an intelligent conversation in Cantonese, let it be Putonghua). Etc. In any case, do not force yourself to be what you can't be - and besides, I enjoy being fluent in both Canada's official languages, such that I can understand nerdy jokes on La Première Chaîne *and* Radio One. Someday, you just want to share your true amazement at getting xiao long bao for 10RMB for a bowl of 16 big ones, or at the poutine they sell in Wan Chai (for 50HKD - the costliest, ugliest poutine I ate in my entire life), or at the micro cars that are the norm in Japan and which are the first models that can convince you to get a driving license.

Tagging! (The reason why I never do memes - other than b/c nobody tags my singleton blog - is that I am always a bit insecure about the responding part. Rejection is such a hard thing. I need more practice.)
