Woke up at T0500.
Premier train 5h42, eh.
Walked to the Vendôme station T0522; the billetier let me in without a ticket.
But I still gotta wait for the first train.
I better make it on time for the plane.
Got to Bonaventure T0549.
Ran to the Aérogare Centre-Ville; found out that the bus leaves c. T0610 and arrives at Dorval c. T0630.
T0652 Now in the airplane.
T0658 Cabin door closed. Thank the LORD; I made it.
I checked in around T0635. They told me that I was late for the flight (I remembered that Celtic-looking lady!) but still issued a manual boarding pass. I then had to go through the U.S. Immigration and Customs. The immigration asked my newest passport, my visa, my I-20 and my I-94. He moved my old I-94 which I did not have to surrender neither upon leaving the States nor upon entering Canada. T0704
At the gate, they took away my manual boarding pass and gave me a printed pass, along with that for the Newark/San Diego flight. T0706 aboard Continental 1055, from Montréal to Newark.

T1225 Eating again at the Yoshinoya in downtown San Diego.
What did I bring back from this trip? Arctic tan, a bunch of French words, and a few Canadian coins that I wasn't able to sell to the Mutual Life of Omaha counter at Terminal 1, San Diego Airport?
I have this weird feeling of never having left home, but also that of never actually returning home. I am still a sojourner. T1230
