Samedi dans les ruelles…

Posted in Posts by James Benedict Brown on 22 October, 2005

It’s not cold yet, but it’s certainly getting ready to be cold. The temperature in Montréal this week has hovered between -1 C at night at 10 C in the day time. Today we took the metro north to our favourite Saturday afternoon haunt – the Marché Jean-Talon. Today’s crop includes a carrier bag full of McIntosh apples ($2) two bunchs of bananas (29c/lb) and a pineapple. Nice. We delivered some to Johnathan on the way home, and then walked back from Boul. St. Laurent to Mont-Royal through the back streets and ‘ruelles’ of the Plateau.

In the Plateau area of Montréal, this are the wonderfully peaceful back alleys that run parallel to the streets between the rows of houses and apartments. The leaves are starting to fall as well. With the crisp fresh air, it’s a beautiful time of year to be a flâneur in Montréal.
