May 18, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Notre-Dame de MontrĂ©al

Montreal, Canada, taken on May 15, 2016

I’ve been to several Notre-Dames – the ones in Paris, Notre-Dame (USA), and Montreal – and the one in Montreal has got to be the most impressive. Many years ago when I was here, I’ve already seen it but I don’t have much memory of that trip since it’s been almost 14 years. A few days ago, when I saw the inside of the grand basilica again, I was rather stunned by its majesty. So gorgeous!

Indeed, this is the basilica on the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, not the Notre Dame de Paris. I’m surprised that during the 8 months that I was in South Bend, I was only there once or twice and never noticed how stunning the architecture was until I looked at my photos afterwards.

South Bend, USA, taken on May 9, 2009

I had a Mexican colleague during my internship at Notre Dame, and our house became a “Canadian-Mexican embassy” for one day as the Canadians (us) and the Mexican decided to hold a feast. Well, more like our Mexican friend offered to cook an entire Mexican meal for us, which was delicious of course. It’s been 6 years already! Where are you, my Mexican friend?
