Montreal, Day II...
Yesterday afternoon I went for a picnic in Parc LaFontaine. It was a beautiful day, lots of sun, a slight breeze, and it was only 26C! We ate, talked, and ended up playing frisbee for a bit.
Later in the afternoon I went out and bought a French-French dictionary from a used bookstore (only $20!), as well as a French thesaurus. We then wandered through the Juste pour rire festival, and listened to a few stand-up comics, en francais, as well as saw some people acting. We waited for some of Sophia's friends near the Nuits d'Afrique (Nights of Africa) Festival, and listed to some African music for a while. A bunch of us then headed down to Vieux Port and watched the evening fireworks. It was Canada last night, and on previous Saturdays they've had various other countries performing. Canada wasn't too bad, surprisingly!

If it was the same fireworks group that was at the Calgary show last year I can honestly say they were the best or close second out of the 6 countries blowing things up. Real nice touch on the kabooms :)

Kaboom. Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an Earth shattering kaboom! - MTM

Yah, Canada wasn`t too bad. I`ve seen better, although they had a few cool ones that they lit off. It`ll see who wins the competition because there are 9 countries competing.
