Can't leave this on the last page. Welcome to the new one!

I didn't know if I should share some of these pics here or not, given that there are already a lot of (awesome) Montreal pictures being posted. But since they'll be outdated in a few days, here they are.

Ahuntsic
My itinerary started home, in the northern neighbourhood of Ahuntsic. One of these is my home but I won't tell you which it is .





Youville
The often forgotten neighbourhood of Youville historically stood on both side of where the Metropolitain passes today. The southern part is usually considered as the northern part of Villeray. Though the Métropolitain is over 50 years old, you still feel the scar in the urban fabric (gaps in the plexes rows, gaz stations and other 1-storey commercial buildings from the 60s to the 80s).



André-Grasset College


Crossing to the other side...






Église Saint-Alphonse-d'Youville




Villeray
Then, we enter in Villeray, an old tramway-oriented blue-collar neighborhood. It's one of my favourite parts of the city. I used to live there too...

Typical Villeray streets and alleys...












Jarry Park






Rue De Castelnau




Église Notre-Dame-du-Saint-Rosaire


Alleys...






Le Plateau
Eventually, I ended up on the Plateau to join some friends... Beautiful evening...

Square Saint-Louis












Prince-Arthur Street












LaFontaine Park
(this picture's from last week, though...)

A few recent ones, not my own, set to the song that just beat Heave Away, Atlantic Blue and The Bliss in a local voting contest to be named the Best Newfoundland Song of All Time.

Really nice set. Loved it! I used to live in Villeray, and then in the Plateau. Loved both neighbourhoods, which you represented quite well, and that we do not see often enough around here (well the Plateau Mont-Royal yes, but Villeray not so much).

Gorgeous Saint John set, and lovely Halifax ones. Cheers/Canadian are like... "NEVER GO IN HERE" signs for me, personally, but the scenes look nice.

Like ours here is all Bud Light on George Street. Ugh.

This week has been providing some really nice misty mornings with golden sunrises over Metro Vancouver.



Skyscrapers often produce an upward draft alongside them, which is visible in this photo of the Sovereign. For this reason it is not uncommon to have mosquitoes even on the penthouse level during summer.



Morning fog begins to vanish with the approaching sunrise.





Trust me, Richmond is somewhere down there.



Marine Gateway complex reappearing from the fog.



Fog and mist are a very common sight over East Richmond fields during autumn and winter. They make for a scenery which is like a painting.





Golden sunrise



Alex Fraser Bridge is getting ready for yet another morning rush hour.



Port Mann Bridge takes commuters above the clouds.



Surrey Central skyline is ready for a new day.





And here comes the sun!





It is great start to one's day to get to wake up to such a sight.

Cheers is one of a bunch of bars that are part of the "liquor dome", a spot that's popular with 19 year olds. Economy Shoe Shop used to be a bit nicer but it's been open since the 90's (i.e. when Stella Artois was considered fancy) and has not kept up much with the times. Halifax has a large number of much much better beer places now. Maybe these older places along Argyle will be modernized a bit now that the construction there is calming down and the patios can reopen (they are going to be year-round now too).

By the way, I was reminded of you when I was there a couple months ago and my friend mentioned that he liked the electronic music more in clubs in St. John's. I am not sure if electronic music is something you only get in gay bars or quasi-gay-bars in St. John's, but that is largely the case in Halifax. In Halifax the other places are mostly live music, Celtic-themed stuff, hipstery, or pop music.

(Here in Vancouver if you go out to most gay bars or events, 90% of the time the music is just thumping noises. I guess you are supposed to be on a lot of drugs...)

It's a bit of a toss up. Electronic is kind of a broad spectrum. What happens locally is even the shittiest dive bar will, a few times a month, have a band that is relatively well known locally and completely changes the night.

Also, bar-based nightlife is a cultural touchstone. Every neighbourhood still has its local, people go to the bars with their babies, old ladies knit there while slutty teen girls dance, etc. It's still very that.

I remember my first, and only time, at the Dome. It was way too much, even for how drunk I was. Cheers was a welcome escape from the high-tension Dome dance floor. Why was everyone there 3 seconds away from fighting everyone and anyone??

Parade of Lost Souls last weekend is an East Vancouver tradition since several decades in the Commercial Drive area.







Some of the costumes were grim which work well so close to Halloween.







Joining the parade crowd.







Parade is a family-friendly event and so really popular with many families.







Different costumes.





Even though this year didn't see the biggest crowds, it was still very busy.



City skyline in the background.



Parade arriving at its destination.







Different performances and music are an integral part of the event.









School bus converted into a ball pit was an interesting and popular idea.









It was nice to see that most people dressed up for the event.





Ummm...wat?
