Montréal, May 2014


Click for 16 pics in Picasa. Back in Montreal after 12 years but this time a flying visit, overnight on Cosmos Coach Tour 8200 (“Eastern U.S. & Canada Grand Vacation”). The 1976 Olympic Stadium still looks the same, with the glass elevator that we rode in last time still running up the spine. The Jacques Cartier bridge and all the other landmarks still familiar, nice to be back.

Lovely reunion dinner with long time friend Antoine and his partner Cynthia. We stayed in Antoine’s parents’ apartment last time (they being in Paris at the time), and Antoine remains the perfect generous host that he has always been.

A drive around the formula 1 circuit, in the Cosmos coach, was fun. The guide tells the story of when they used to run mock coach races around the track, but they are not allowed to do that any more.
