Montreal, Day 2

31 Dec


The weather was much tolerable today and we were able to walk around old Montreal.


We had a nice brunch at Le Gros Jambon.


The guys went to do some last minute clothes shopping for the party and the girl hit the spa for mani-pedi. My nail technician was a nice Armenian lady. We both speak Russian and had a nice chat about life. She finished off my manicure with a top coat containing18K real gold speckles.  She didn’t charge extra for it and told me it’s for good luck.

    I loved walking around old Montreal. Your photos remind me of how beautiful the city is and make me nostalgic! I’ll have to make a return trip soon.

      I have to make a return trip too as I am not able to explore the city as much as I wish. The weather doesn’t seem to like me – last time it rained non-stop, this time was freezing.

    How fantastic, Old Montreal is on our bucket list. It looks like a place I would really enjoy. We were in Europe in 2008 and I simply couldn’t take enough photo’s of all the intricate architecture. How grand to have a mani-pedi with another gal who speaks your language….I bet you made her whole day.

      Montreal has a lot of beautiful architecture, I love going there.
      There was another Russian-speaker client at the spa – a Latvian-born lady (living in NYC now). All three of us had a great chat 🙂
