At the airport now, getting ready to head back home.

I started out on Maissonneuve, near the UQAM, for the first few days. Very simple, small hotel, but with the weather being what it was, the longish walk to downtown was ok.

Wednesday, I moved to a hotel on Victoria Square, where I had a nice view of all the rioting going on at the Palace des Congres. Interesting stuff. I gather it's about tuition hikes?

Anyway, I can across a store in the Mont Royal bit of the underground shopping area called Rock and Rebel. They sell Au Noir dress shirts. Hot digity! They're expensive, but WOW.

Bussed it to Ottawa one of the days, just to change it up a bit. That's a nice city, too. I have previously only spent any length of my time in Canada out West, so it's good to see some of the "older" areas. Didn't get to go to Quebec City, but such is life.
