Time has flown. It was only a few weeks ago that I spent a good weekend in Montreal. Here are some pics... from my hotel room window along Boulevard René-Lévesque, a sculpture near the Fine Art Museum, a charming doorway, and the Santa Claus Parade... more accurately it was for Péré Noël!
The parade was charming to begin with, with Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer sung in French, etc., but turned very creepy as I was almost crushed to fainting by an out-of-control crowd of dolts who refused to back off in any direction. Several of us were scared out of our wits. We survived. I don't like crowds. But I like Montreal. I shopped. A lot. I'm on a shopping diet now.
