Au Canada!

John and I made a great little trip north to Montreal last weekend - what a fun city! Here are some photos:

On the way into the city, on a seriously foggy morning.

An art installation of giant air-freshener trees.

 Notre Dame: c'est obligatoire.

 Giant chess boards.

 Funky murals, cool architecture.

 Juste pour rire/just for laughs

 Elaborate graffiti

 Likewise, more elaborate graffiti

 John, going with the flow

John au Restaurant Les Pyrénées

 Along the St. Lawrence River

 Fancy metro station

 On the way up to Parc Mont Royal

 Telephone booth at the top of Mont Royal. John has entitled this photo "A Call of Nature."

A little snailfriend we made on the top of Mont Royal

 The ugly Croix de Montreal. Ugly! Ugh.

 Us chillin' in the Parc de Mont Royal

 Leaning birches on the way down from Mont Royal

 More crazy graffiti

 Under Pressure! more graffiti.

 Oh la la! Indeed.

 More graffiti/murals... I think I spy Alfred Hitchcock in there.

A perfect example of Montreal's architectural schizophrenia...

Et voila, des fleurs. C'etait un bon voyage! Merci et bonne nuit!
