Day 4 Montreal
22.08.2010 - 23.08.2010 21 °C
Today I did the hop on Hop off Tour which while good was not as good as some other hop hop off tours I have done, they only had about 8 stops and a couple od those I had already seen during my walking tour. The weather was perfect today a little cloudy but sunnny and warm so I climbed Mount Royal or in local words Mont Royale, the name Montreal was derived from this hence tghe city's name. The climb up was quite steep especially up Rue de Peel (Peel Street) and then had a multitude of steps to climb to reach the peak, I then followed a bit of an offthe beaten track and found the localbroadcasting tower which ids perched right on the top, it did test my fitness and so just to prove Iam still fit I redid the climb later in the afternoon. The views are fantatstic as you overlook the whole city and with the day being clear you could see for miles. Iam hoping my legs don't react tomorrow!
I then did a bit of a walk around town, saw some clothes that I liked and were not too expensive so may go back tomorrow....have only one more day left in Montreal and then its NEW YORK, the down side my taxi is picking me up at 4.00am to catch my flight to New York
