We spent the  morning in the land of Mordecai Richler, William Shatner and local indy music. Just west from our own neighbourhood is Mile End. It feels like the land that time forgot. It looks so much like the kind of place where Mr. Hooper just might have a store and Big Bird’s nest could be tucked away in one of the well used little alleys.

We heard more English here and found it to be more multi-cultural than other areas we’ve been to. The boys were particularly fascinated by the Hasidic Jews. We haven’t seen many until today.

We also found sweet chocolate bagels, interesting graffiti, an old school soda fountain and a beautiful paper store. The highlight for us was Drawn & Quarterly where we spent a good long while perusing the stacks and reading Tin Tin books. It felt like we met yet another of Montreal’s many distinct personalities.
