I am an artist in Montreal, who loves to host through AirBnb. I am looking for extra spaces to keep in mind for when I have models, or other artists coming through the city for our events.
"Montrealers look at each other with passionate intensity that seems to go deep into the soul or, more to the point, penetrate your clothing. Montrealers have a way of glancing that is completely sexual, as if they're deciding whether to lead you up to a room at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth hotel that very moment or to give a heartbreaking not-today-not ever smirk. It's disconcerting to have that happen in the middle of the day; most of us are more prepared for this kind of interaction at night, in a bar, while a little tipsy and girded. Once you get into it and stare back, the conversation starts to work both ways and suddenly, in the collective imagination of everyone on the street, everybody is naked. How nice is that?"
