I longed to walk blissfully the streets of Montreal on a balmy hot summer night at the Jazz Festival, strolling from one stage to the next immersed in the crowd, the heat and the music.
And I did it! It was just as good as in my memories from the days I lived in Montreal. People everywhere, all ages, all cultures, chatting, laughing and dancing in the streets. A crowd was gathering at la place des Festivals in anticipation of the joyous music of Fanfare Ciocarlia, a 11 piece gypsy brass band from Romania. The party was on! I haven't danced like that in eons, ouch my knees!
Montreal: full of surprises.
On St-Denis street the hydro poles are wrapped in colourful knitting ready for the circus!
On Marianne street, a bench and a piano invites passersby to jam together for a musical interlude.
Hope you also had a fantastic month of July. I wish you all great happiness, all the creativity in the world and a beautiful August.
