Montreal

2014

Friday

I was invited to attend a cousin's baby shower in Montreal, how nice that I could go with my kids to explore the Canadian city. The ride from NY was pleasant and we were happy to see signs in English and French, not that I remember any of the French I took for 6 years, but hey! happy to be in Montreal for the weekend. We arrived late afternoon on a Friday and immediately went out to do some sightseeing.

Esto de visitar Montreal después de 25 años de haber ido por primera vez fue como una conmemoración. Llegamos una viernes por la tarde y ni tardos ni perezosos nos lanzamos a caminar por esta bella ciudad.

 I have a picture like this of me standing in the same place as my son from 25 years ago! yes, it was time to show the kids how pretty Montreal is.  Tengo una foto igual a ésta en donde yo  estoy parada en el mismo lugar en donde está mi hijo, pero de hace 25 años!
