Soundtrack: Jean Michel Jarre, Fifth Rendez-Vous
Well it was cold the weekend I arrived, it’s been hot and incredibly steamy, now the days are shortening (no not butter) and there’s a chill in the air, although it’s still steamy ugh. Just this morning a loud roofing contractor has started assembling scaffolding over the road. Last weekend was labour day, the last long weekend of summer for locals and so it’s all signs that it’s time for me to move on. Over the last week I’ve been visiting some of my favourite spots to say farewell. So these are not a reprise of old photos, they’re new to you, spots that will stay fondly in my memory of Montreal.
Jean Talon – look at those brassicas! The lady assured me that all those cauliflower colours are natural. Just amazing.
There will never be berries the same… a person could almost cope with 6 months of winter here just for 4 months of berries.
Thank goodness I didn’t go into the Gin Pub till the end of my trip!
The Italian church and laundry! I watched the start of Quantico this week, loved it – and my church (photoshopped) is the mosque in the fourth episode! Love it Montreal.
I have spent hours climbing in and out of Metro stations and riding the trains, even got to ride the new trains. And I think I worked out which station features in the ending of Jesus of Montreal.
And of course the warehouse and its alien water-tower have watched it all.
Montreal I resisted you for quite a while, but you’ve persisted and made yourself a place in my heart… jusqu’à la prochaine fois…
But tomorrow may snow so,
I’ll follow the sun
