Now, you did notice that I said downtown Moncton, didn't you? Main Street. We live about 20 to 30 minutes (depending who's driving) outside of this city. The Peticodiac River (also known as the Chocolate River because of its frequent brown hue from the silt in it--that is silt not s--t, you'll note) runs through it and there is a walkway along most of it, though I've never strolled it. Charming, in its way. But not really what I consider a great downtown. In fact, this song by internationally renowned, local Acadian songstress (now living in Montreal, Paris, and...?) pretty much sums up my feelings about my little town.
Even if you don't understand all the words (she sings in the true "Shiak" mix of French & English) you'll see some more images of what I like to call Monkeytown.
Comme elle dit, "j'feel ben stuck icitte."
