The following pictures were taken on Mont Royal. Mont Royal is actually just a little hill in the city, but it's tall enough so we get a clear view of the whole city.
|Tristan always makes faces in pictures. This is the best of the whole bunch.|
|See what I'm talking about?|
|The big white structure on the left of my head is the Olympic Stadium|
|It's a very nice city... if you don't visit Quebec City, that is.|

Downtown Montreal Art Galleries.
This is the last time we've seen Tristan's hat.
Soon after, we sat down so the kids can drink their slushies. Look at how Tristan monkey around.
Overall, I like the city, but not impressed. I really enjoyed old town Montreal and the Notre-Dame, but disappointed at the botanical garden. The Biodome was awesome. No pictures because the camera ran out of battery. We stayed at Residence Inn in downtown Montreal and would not recommend this hotel. The hotel is very old and the rooms are quite small. The window air conditioner unit is loud, and the whole room had an odor. Not up to Residence Inn standard in the US. I also realized that with US dollar now cheaper than Canadian dollar, everything seems very expensive in Canada. I walked into an H&M only a block away from our hotel and was quite amazed at the price of the cheaply made clothes. Needless to say, no shopping loot for me.
I hope you enjoyed my photo babbling, and stay tuned to the next post - Quebec City. (I love this city.)
