My hosts Gavin and Elisa and their daughter Charlotte have been fantastic. Last night after a lovely meal we sat around chatting but I was dead on my feet last night and slept well and even had a lie in this morning. When Elisa and Charlotte came back from swimming we all headed off into the city. They had kindly offered to show me around. We headed towards the city then parked and took the metro to near the race track. We then caught the bus to outside the Casino on the Ile Notre Dame just off the main Island. We were going for lunch at the casino but because of Charlotte age not allowed in. We walked round part of the gardens and did the Grand Prix track you are allowed to cycle round which was great.
The casino very busy and plenty of visitors going in to relieve themselves of their hard earn cash. Then onto the track.
Then on to the square to watch a mad man juggle knives and standing on swords
Very nice and colourful but I didn’t try the poutine yet but will get around to it. It’s chips cheese curds and gravy and other variations. Could be a heart attack waiting but I’m sure it needs sampling.
On the way home Elisa was kind enough to drive out to her area of Verdun where she grew up and show me the Rapids at Lachine which were awesome
All in all it was a wonderful day good company lovely food and a fantastic city thanks again to my hosts.
