2021: The People of Québec

So, from September 17th to the 20th, I had the golden chance to visit Québec. There I met a few cool Québecois and other non-Québecois living there. French or Français is the dominant language there, but most young locals can easily switch to English, which is awesome. (I wish we could do that in the…
