Thursday/Jeudi, Week One

Just today's pics, Montreal is a young and vibrant city at heart, arts and music are big drawcards, there are comedy festivals and an International Film Festival is currently running. Several city streets have Victorian era street lamps to make them suitable for filming movies of recent eras.
Joe's eyes nearly popped out of his head when he saw an actor from a favourite Quebec film, "Barbarian Invasions", buying his lunch in the food hall under the Hyatt Hotel! It was Roy Dupuis.

We may or may not have an enjoyed a small Mexican plate of afternoon tea ;)
There are amazing murals on many city walls, some several stories high...have a peek...
a Uni library

can you see the mosque?

this Arabic mural seems to be related to the Mosque

close up of the concert mural..

Loved this, a hat-maker's shop dating back to 1932

Will post again soon,
Love to ya'll


  1. I was wondering if you had already gone to Canada, Sue. Love the photos and have a wonderful time. Have you hugged that bub yet?

  2. Ive always wondered if there is an unwritten code between graffiti artists (read criminals) that they dont tag wall art. It seems they feel the needs to destroy everything with their need for recognition but leave the wall murals alone. These are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Beautiful pix, Sue. I'm so happy you have made it to Canada. Excited to see the new little guy, too, I bet. I have sad news, we lost Steve on the 14th. Peaceful, quick passing. We are muddling through this and will be ok eventually. Hug your babies tight, Sue, enjoy your visit. Hedy
