Until last week Montreal was for me only the place where Nadia Comaneci had won her perfect 10 the summer that I was born. After a surprisingly easy trip last weekend (we drove and it was not that bad, actually) it has fleshed out a little. Now it’s the place with the Jean Talon market where they have a Romanian store, the stunning cathedral where a few women find their place also, not just bearded old men, with the botanical garden that has a pond bordered by lilac trees and with the lively street full of graffiti art, with a Juliette et Chocolat and Eva B, the most dreamy thrift store in the world, where I just wanted to move it right away.

    It looks like a very cool place to visit – the pics are great! – I’m so glad you had a great trip! The lilac trees remind me of the house where I grew up…

    Oh, that thrift store! I’ve been wanting to go to Montreal, but now I REALLY want to go! (Not just because of the thrift store, but that helps.)

      Oh, Charity, that thrift store is out of this world! It surely feels like that. You need to make a Montreal trip before you move out of this are, because it’s really, surprisingly close.
