Without a car or lots of money to dine out in Montreal you can be pretty stuck for things to do (unless you like walking a lot, which after an hour walking to the gym, I don’t). But luckily for us, we were near the historic district of Old Montreal. Although it is only a small part of the city it has a lot of charm (and food). One afternoon Paul and I decided to have a wander around the cobbled streets and observe what was visually on offer.
A big shame about much of Canada is that the cities seem brand new. Glass towers with very little character or architectural ambition, and that is a shame. But Old Montreal brought some of that back which I appreciated very much. Here are some snaps from our afternoon walk.
