@ gino lo spazzino: Thanks Gino! Do you know what? If I were your English teacher, I would have given you an A! Just a few more polishings and you're good to go. You're even far more articulate than some English speakers, so it's no wonder that you got a perfect score in your previous exam. Anyway, I really didn't knew about the Rome-Milan hatred for one another. Thanks for the info! With regards to Toronto and Montreal rivalry, I think its deeply rooted more on hockey and a bit political (Anglophones vs. Francophones). But in my humble opinion, the rivalry thing (except hockey) is now a thing of the past as a lot of Torontonians love Montreal and visit the city quite often, and most Montrealers I know love Toronto too and come here as well.

@ christos-greece: As always, thanks a bunch Chris!!!

@ PortoNuts: Thanks, thanks!!!

@ Chadoh25: Oh cool! Thanks! I'm doing good too, thanks for asking. Slept at 7am earlier! Hehe

Thank you Mark, I've got 8 or 9 (Canadian vote: A+ and A++) because the maximum test score was 7.

However, the rivalry with Milan-Rome is that the world exists! Even before founding of Toronto.
As for sport, here the only super rivalry there is between our home football teams: AC Milan-FC Inter (I hold for AC Milan).

But it is true that Montréal is the only around the American continent to have a real old town? Seeing with google street view seemed very nice.

However, those beautiful colors on the wall of the skylight, It's paint or pannels?

I hope with all the photos, you don't get you to a Japanese tourist, here in Italy, the Japanese and Chinese tourist, photographing traffic lights, police hats and when it happens, they flocked to take picture of the Alfa Romeo 159 and Lamborghini Gallardo Police and Carabinieri Land Rover Discovery. Oh, also they photographs the baskets and streetlights of the city center.

Crazy Stuff, eh. Ciao!

@ gino lo spazzino: You're welcome Gino! Wow, so it's really an Old World rivalry that still exist, much like London-Paris! Cool! I think healthy rivalries are good because they bring out the best in us.
I have been to quite a handful of major cities here in North America, but so far, I haven't seen anything like the old city that they have in Montreal. I've only seen heritage districts, but not as expansive as Old Montreal. I haven't been to Quebec City, but they say it's more Old World than New World. Toronto suffered two major fires from long ago that destroyed huge chunks of the city, thereby, losing blocks and blocks of historical buildings and structures.
And to answer your question, they are tiles.
I think tourists are really that way wherever you go. They would of course take pictures of things that are not common or familiar to them haha. When I was in Japan, I was taking pictures of their futuristic vending machines. Passersby probably thought I was crazy hehe.

Well, let's say that Paris has two rivals in Europe: London and Milan.

London because around 1500, the British fought the French for both maritime trade and for the American colonies, then finished in hand all the English, and between 1790 and 1810 for the war with Napoleon.

Today, the London economy in certainly stronger than that of Paris, but the French still have an economy a bit stronger than English, which is based mainly on finance, while French is a bit as our Italian, Half Finance Half Industrie.

Milan because Paris has always been been open with us to fight shots of fashion shows.
But the Milan fashion brands can count as: Prada, Gucci, D&G, Armani, Cavalli, Versace and Bvlgari.
That Paris instead relies brands like are: Dior, Chanel, Luis Vuitton an YLSaintLourain.

Final Score: Brands: Milan 7-Paris 4 Total GDP: Milan 40 Billions €-Paris 20 billions €.

Fine Rivalry, true? Better! This rivalry London-Milan-Paris is still very healthy.

And after another boring story in the history of the Old Continet:

There are some US cities that do: NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Wash DC etc. Mostly the larger east coast cities. I still think none of them can compare to the cities of Quebec in "Old World" terms.

@ gino lo spazzino: Oh, I see, cool, never knew that! I remember before during the bidding for the 2012 Olympics, it was a classic match between London and Paris, kind of igniting again the rivalries of old, especially during the minutes before, during, and after the announcement of the winning city.
Anyways, I saw a flm today from the Toronto International Film Festival entitled The Solitude of Prime Numbers, which was an Italian movie.

nice photos Mark as always.
here, I'd been aiming to go out a little farther from the city (like about 40-50 kms. and close to border) to shot but the cloudy/rainy weather and it often than not happens on Sunday which is my free day.

I mean out of Vancouver but still part of metro like White Rock or Crescent Beach
which is close to Washington border.
and there are still lots of empty spaces/farms in between.

Check my Victoria photos @ My Travel Photos Update
