All posts for the month December, 2012

Montreal, in the middle of summer is spectacular. There are festivals practically on every street corner. It is fun, and exciting. Makes you want to linger, absorbing the beauty and warmth. Every year, St.Catherine street is closed off to traffic and it is transformed into one large party. The stores lining the street display their wares on the sidewalk. There is food and music and street performers. The street is crowded with pedestrians enjoying the glorious summer day. And as usual there are classic cars to view probably intended to distract the males while women shop for shoes.

The show Nissan GT Academy is a great idea. It merges the virtual world of Sony’s Playstation Gran Turismo and the racetrack. The winners of the online competition get to finish the game in a real racecar on a real circuit. A dream come true for many! The challenges that the contestants are faced with are imaginative which makes the show interesting and lots of fun. If you are into videogames, cars and racing or any combination of one of these you are going to enjoy this. Makes me want to run out and buy a Nissan 370Z. Yes!
