A very wet day
|Living room of my apt at Solin Hall|
|Kitchen/dining area - I just used the table to throw my backpack on! And the fridge to keep||fruit and water cold.|
|Cafe where I had my bagel|
|Tres wet Vieux Montreal|
|Display of Seabirds at the Biodome|
Anyway the Biodome is the former Velodrome from the Olympic games in 1976 - I guess something good came out of the Olympics. It has four ecosystems with the appropriate animals and plant life - Tropical, Laurentian forest, polar and the coastline. The latter was really neat with all sorts of sea birds flying over our heads. The penguins were adorable. I love the way they walk - reminds me of me on a bad knee day. :)
From there I decided to go to Little Italy so got off at the metro station but could not find it and no one I asked had a clue. Well one directed me but could not find it. By now I was getting annoyed so hopped (or staggered to) the metro and ended up having an Indian meal downtown. This is a very abreviated version of events. By this time I was tired and hungry and some strange fellow started whistling as we were waiting for the train - he kept wandering up and down the platform almost testing to see how it sounded - I HATE whistling - have done since I was a child - it was a toss up whether to push him onto the tracks or tell him to shut the f**k up. (or do both in reverse order) Luckily the train came in before I had to make the decision.
Anyway veggie korma which was the best I've ever had - with naan followed by masala chai. Very nice!!!
I picked up a copy of the Montreal Gazette so up to my apt now to relax and read for a bit. I am very very tired and bitchy. (in case you hadn't noticed)
Tomorrow more rain is predicted so looking at more museums - the original plan was to go on a 10km walk up to Mount Royal park....oh well what can you do you can't control the weather so you have to go with the flow.
Two weeks and two days on the road and I am getting a bit travel weary. How sad is that.
