May 30-31st

Found our way to Jonathans place and let ourselves in as jo takes a night shift with the paramedics team.

Went to Coras, Lac-de Castor, Tam-tams (my favourite thing about Montreal – a huge gethering of drumming, dancing, personal marketing, poi spinning, hacky-sacking, and happy people), walked through Vieux-Montréal, and Vieux-Port stumbling upon Fesitval des Gourmandes ( always a festival in Montréal), learned that chapiteau means marquee tent as we past by the Cirque-du-Soleil, grabbed sorbet, watched jugglers, and played Laser-quest!, partook in a dinner at Le Commensal (another love in, vegetarian buffet restaurant, yummy!), and watched Le princesse et le grenouille. (the princess and the frog in french!)

Packed sandwiches the next day to go to Jean Drapeau station on l’île Ste Hélene. Tried to see the Biosphere, unfortunately its about the only time it was closed that season. Met with Lydia and saw her friend at Université de Montréal, and then a concert at Lion d’or were a 20 person ensemble called Fanfare Pourpour was playing.  More ice cream and then a lovely trek up Mont-Royal. Skyline of Montreal is still smoky after the recent 51 forest fires.

Some hours later we finally made it back to Jo’s place.
