    Montreal Things to Do

    This lovely city hall building was built between 1872 and 1878. Located right across the street from Place Jacques Cartier it is right by the Champ de Mars. The balcony is where Charles de Gaulle uttered the words Vive le Québec Libre!" ("Long live free Québec!") which helped to strain relations with the Canadian government. Hours- 9 am-4 pm...

    Montreal Restaurants

    My brother in law had really talked up the 'smoked meat' of Montreal, so it was a 'must try', on our visit here. We ordered the smoked meat sandwich on rye, with a sides of chips, coleslaw and cherry cola to drink. The meat is just like corned beef that we make at home, nicely salty, but hardly a hint of smoky taste. The coleslaw was a good...

    I was in Stephos this week and did not like the attention of the waiter Allan. When I finalized my food, he even asked me if I wanted the bill and has put the bill on the table. After that, I handed him my credit card for payment. Then he came back and told me that sometimes credit cards from Brazil are not accepted. An absurd! because I used the...

  • Montmorency Falls

    Quebec Things to Do

    About 8 miles out of Quebec is this fantastic falls. They are higher than Niagara but not as wide. There is no public transport out here so you can either rent a car, book a bus tour, or as I did rent a bike. There is a bike trail that extends from the old city all the way to the falls and beyond. At 8 miles its a fairly easy about 1 hr ride.

    Ottawa Things to Do

    Here on Ottawa's Paliament Hill there are various statues of prominent Canadian statesmen(plus a couple of English queens). The most interesting, to me at any rate, is Barbera Paterson's relatively recent monument entitled, "Women are Persons". This set of scupltures, depicting 5 women, was inauguarated on October 18th 2000 and commemorates what is...

  • At the Forks

    Winnipeg Restaurants

    This is a real happening place. I don't talk that way, but that is a description given by many. Lots of fun, great food, great ambience, great beer. All meats are cooked the old Deep South way, in a smoker for hours and hours, so the meat literally falls off the bone. Great smoked flavour, tender, juicy.
