Thank you for all your comments people. Here are some pictures I snapped today. Will try to upload a bit more later this week. I hope you enjoy them.

All the pictures here are taken from a newly constructed Apartment block in the Heart of Downtown. They were taken from the 20th floor.

These are pictures of Les Desjardins Complex and to the right of them is the Hydro Building. Most people dislike the Hydro building and think it is an eyesore, but I really love it. Its beauty it’s in its immenseness.



This picture is looking down at Montreal’s convention centre and from there looking towards St. Lawrence and the Cartier Bridge. You can see a building (I believe it’s the Holidays Inn) with Chinese Architecture; that strip of road is where Montreal’s Chinatown is located in.



Just some close up of buildings looking towards the very centre of Downtown.



Looking up rue de Bleury from 20 floors above.

Montreal is amazing I loved it, I was there on my last vacation and I really enjoyed my visiting, I hope I would go in the next year, but the only thing I didn't like was the language, I don't speak french and I speak english but you montreal's people don't pronunciate it as well as americans do and i didn't understand very well

ja LoL
it was very hard to me to understand
there were some people that did have a good pronunciation.
