Montreal Part Deux

Another day wonderful Montreal. Did I tell you how much I love this place. Check the previous post. Today we go to the famed Gilles Villeneuve Circuit.

The best way to get there is by Montreal's subway system. Just like Japan, it's very easy to use and so convenient. It was just a block away from our hotel.

There is still quite a bit of walking required to get to the track itself since it's in a park, Parc Jean-Drapeau.

After the subway, you need to go through the forest

Next is crossing a bridge.

Then it's through another forest, by the time you get out, you're greeted by this guy on the big screen.

Nice Canadian girls giving out some stuff.

Ferrari's pit crew on a break.

To here these things at full song is so beautiful. So loud, yet so sweet. Qualifications for today was so exciting since at the last minute Lewis Hamilton pulled a rabbit out of his helmet with the pole on his last lap with barely enough gas to make the finish. I'm sure you all know that already.

Now let's take another walk about the city. I don't know if was Formula 1 or the World Cup, but there was a bunch of things going on everywhere around downtown.

More strip club action.

One street played host to a fashion show.

Another street featured a band playing old rock covers.

With a couple of campaign girls.

There was a lot more going on, but i'm all tuckered out from all this walking. Til next time au revoir.
