  Wishing Winter Away...


It never worked for me - and I know it never will either...
Gotta live through it...

Wishing back the days of watching, half-amused, the Chilly Willy, Woody Woodpecker and such toons doesn't work either...

One of the greatest - I admit - church interiors of all is to be found right there, in the otherwise less and less pious town of Montréal!
They have this wondrous, grandiose, multimediatic luminous spectacle called ET LA LUMIÈRE FÛT there - guaranteeing that this basilica will not go the same way as many other architectural treasures/fortresses of faith have gone... (Basically -no pun intended- being deconscrated and turned into condos from the outside in - while preserving their outer architectural panache on the façades only... What a travesty!)

A perfect stopover for tourists (what the administrators -the Archbishop of the Montreal Diocese and crew- are banking on, really) this spectacle goes for a rather reasonable ticket price (10$) and teaches one and all about the history of the basilica, the city and the art works contained therein...

Amazingly enough (for those in the know) there is at least one other pilgrim's paradise on the otherwise damned island of Montreal - and that is the famed St-Joseph's Oratory, which we will see at another time here...

Needless to say, I still think very poorly of Montreal overall...
(Laval and Montreal are, to me, akin to a modern-day, north-american version of Sodom and Gomorrah! Laval being Montreal's "little urban bro" of sorts... Just north of it... Don't go there - there's nothing to see!)
