Currently posted up at LOLI in Moncton, stopping in for an espresso and a pause before heading back to the Island after dropping family off at the train.

Coffee is good. Vibe is relaxed. Wifi is fast. I believe that fellow on the balcony is a DJ.

Not quite Berlin.

But certainly not the Moncton I arrived in for the first time—at the selfsame train station—40 years ago this summer.
