Place Jacques-Cartier


After yesterday Quebec National day I thought I'll post a famous picture of Montreal. This place is a square located in the Old Montreal, and was built by the city of Montreal in the first half of the 19th century. It is really popular among tourist and also locals, with many coffee places, bars, restaurants and souvenir stores. The street is named for Jacques Cartier, a French explorer popularly thought of as one of the major discoverers of Canada. I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's day off.

This piazza looks like a great place to hang out. It must be looking north west, at least if you took the photo on the 25th. I'll be visiting your city in October, so won't see this kind of light at day's end. (sigh)
