Dinner in the dark

Montreal, Canada

We arrived in Montreal late afternoon and checked into our hostel (a welcome change from camping on mats for a week!) With no time for sightseeing we headed to O. Noir, a restaurant where you eat in complete, pitch darkness with only the blind waiters to help guide you. It was one of the most bizarre and interesting experiences I've ever had. We all had a few moments of panic as we were led into the blackened room and sat down, but we soon adjusted as the food and wine arrived. Eating was bizarre: we had to use our fingers to feel around our plates and often lifted our Forks to our mouths to find that there wasn't actually anything on them. Ross even started chewing on his napkin at one point. We all ordered the mystery starter, and had to guess what it was based on the taste before our waiter revealed it afterwards. Definitely a memorable meal!

After the meal, somebody decided karaoke would be a good idea...we ended up at Pang Pang's, a true Chinese-style karaoke place with our own room. Such a hilarious night...
