We decided to stay in Montreal on this so we could see more of the city since it is a bit larger than Quebec City.
After conversation and suggestion from our roommates, Allen and Joe, we decided to soon visit the Little Italy and French area of town which is east of St. Laurent street. St. Laurent was a busy street full of people and pubs. Just to the east are cool neighborhoods with a bit more of a European feel. Had diner in the Little Italy neighborhood at a place that was quite nice, busy and very cheap – can’t beat that.
Our roommates, Allen and Joe, were an awesome pair…the dad (Allen) and son (Joe) came from across the pond…to be only a bit more exact, England. Allen was an editor for a newspaper in London and Joe was studying at a University. We ended up pairing up the hostel (house) guitar and my classical guitar for some riffs and good ole rock n roll conversation…forget Stairway to Heaven…thankfully they demanded Adam stop playing as soon as he started it. Good song, but how many times can you hear it and still love it, eh?
Montreal is about a 4 star area with the river, small mountains and culture – very cool.
