Pretty Things

Today, I decided to take it easy and just go back to my favorite spots so far.

Back to School

I wanted to visit McGill campus again, as it reminded me so of University of Washington. I also took the metro to get there, as I had decided to stop traveling the hard way. When I got there, there was a labor protest going on at the front entrance to the main campus drive and in some other key areas along the sides of the campus. I thought it interesting to see, just because I don’t think of Canada as having labor disputes. I am guessing that’s just because I don’t watch Canadian news.

I made it past the crowds and walked a little around campus. Then, I found a nice grassy area to sit on with a large tree to lean against. I glanced around occasionally to see what was going on. There was a line up of frat boys helping to unload some truck and pile cases of beer (presumably) in a tent like pavilion. A few had their shirts off, so I think I stared more than glanced.

Back to Sainte Hélène

I returned to the Village to have lunch, which happened to be my last big helping of poutine. I went around to do a little more media shopping, mostly music and DVDs. I didn’t buy anything, but I did note a few titles, which I plan to order via Amazon. Afterward, the day was still so beautiful that I wanted to go back to a park. I took the metro out to île de sainte hélène and parc jean drapeau, where I relaxed for an hour or so. I found a small lake area and reclined while listening to music. There were a few people who had on bathing suits and decided to play in the lake (sort of). I didn’t think that was allowed, but I didn’t see anyone official looking haul them away.

Getting Them Young

After I got back from the parc, I walked around a bit in the village. As I trotted down the strip with renewed energy, I noticed a small boy (maybe 3 or 4 years old) with his mom. He pointed over to one of the male strip clubs whose outside had a lot of different, bright colored flashing neon lights that I am sure made it seem to a young boy that it was a video arcade or similarly young kid’s playground. He asked his mom if they could go in, to which mother kindly replied that they wouldn’t be able to. I smiled to myself.
