A Friday in Montreal: Ralph takes over @GlobalPost

GlobalPost's Talia Beth Ralph, whose family has lived in Montreal for five generations, eats her way around the city.

GlobalPost's Talia Beth Ralph is not exactly new to Montreal. Her family has lived in this intriguing Canadian city for five generations. As part of the GlobalPost Twitter series, "A Friday In ...," Ralph spent the day live-tweeting her tour of the city. She stopped at her favorite bagel and poutine spots, shared some old family tales and went shopping for a Canadian Shabbat dinner.

GlobalPost's Twitter feed showcases the voices and personal experiences of our correspondents based around the world each week. A different correspondent takes over the @GlobalPost account each Friday and tweets about his or her travels and daily activities.
