Montreal

I recently returned from eight days in Montreal. I went there to attend the World Figure Skating Championships. We got there Sunday, March 17. I was really excited that we didn’t have to take a plane and could just drive. The trip basically took us through most of Vermont which had some very pretty parts to it.

Monday and Tuesday were just practice days, so we did some sightseeing. Our hotel was close to Old Montreal and on Monday we did a self-guided walking tour of that neighborhood. The highlight was the Notre-Dame Basilica which was absolutely beautiful.

On Tuesday we went to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and saw an  exhibit about Georgia O’Keeffe and Henry Moore. Although the artists never met each other, the curator found similarities in the materials they used and the themes and topics they explored in their art. At the  end of the exhibit the museum had videoes of both artists talking. Henry Moore’s interview took place in his studio and was fascinating. I really enjoyed the exhibit.
Next week I’ll tell you about the skating.
