都市心


去數星期工作量進入季末高潮﹐簡報一份接一份必須審閱批核﹐如片片雪花飄來。幸而踏入十二月第二個星期﹐一切公務將快塵埃落定﹐上上下下均可以喘一口氣。上周末沒有回多倫多陪伴家人﹐我們心血來潮開車到蒙特利爾度過一個平靜而愉快的周末。十一月底的天氣仍然如中秋般清朗﹐可說異數。

蒙特利爾舊城的馬車遊﹐和紐約中央公園相約﹐是遊客喜愛的活動之一。九年前一名舊同學生日﹐我們四人也乘坐過一次。二十分鐘的車程﹐還有馬夫講述舊城的風物典故。天涼的時候乘坐﹐比天熱的時候適宜﹐至少異味沒有那麼明顯。

舊城曲折的街道。

港口的鐵錨。

喜歡的石板街。

海鷗。

疏影昏黃。

玻璃之城。

是次下榻位於市中心的凱悅麗晶酒店。也許是旅遊淡季﹐除了訂房不太困難外﹐租金加上地下泊車費用仍甚相宜。

世界之翼百貨公司。四處店鋪正雷厲風行以聖誕大減價刺激銷費﹐我們卻毫無購物衝動﹐除了買了一些影碟外﹐堪稱空手而回。只是忙裡偷閒﹐毫無目的地信步而走﹐也是一種樂趣。

I have never hired a calèche in Old Montreal. Touring in one sounds like fun!! Did you try any restaurants?

ps: I have posted the first article of a new series here http://lotusandcedar.blogspot.com/2009/11/dementia-part-1-scientific-perspective.html

好好忙吧﹐但也希望深夜凶鈴不再出現。KL之行應該蠻寫意的。

it's nice to hire a carriage, it's quite romantic. :0) we did go to a restaurant on st. catherine and their ribeye steaks and lamb shanks were quite delicious.

and i checked out the slide shows. very informative and straight forward. similar to something my family came across when my dad was first diagnosed with the conditions. thanks for sharing!
