Where I stayed
At this point, I can't say enough about Sébastien. I'm writing this entry after the great couple of days we spent together. Let's just say that he loves Montreal. And with great due. There was a fantastic music festival going on. The whole down town of the city closes for a week, while the streets are entertained by five different stages and things to see everywhere. The Montreal Jazz Fest has been going for 30 years. Just check out the video of the last night finally.
They were also having a fireworks competition
I got to meet some of Sébastien friends as well, who only added to the fun of the city. If you like a big international city, you must check this place out. They have medieval mock-battles every Sunday with bunches of people. All swinging big foam swords and shooting foam tipped arrows. Nerdy.... Yes. A ridiculous amount of fun for both spectator and combatant... Yes! I also biked all over the city which, surprise surprise, is very bike friendly. The rain was unpredictable but exciting. I want to go back again for next years music festival. Great host. Great food. Great city. Thanks Sébastien, for being such a great host and new friend. Merci.
