Once a year I have a lung doctor appointment in the east of Montreal. I'm not saying the East End because it is an entirely different neighbourhood.
So I leave work early and decide to get off at the Beaudry Metro station (one stop earlier) and walk.
I was in for qute a shock! I found the area so dingy, sad, poor,desperate....I used to work in the vicinity in the late 80's.
It is known as the Gay Village and was, when I worked there. Now I understand the need to gather with same interest people but I can't understand the need to live in such depressing streets and why the area is so rundown!
It is as if nobody cares! 1 in 3 stores or restaurant are for rent or for sale and the residential building are oh so sad....
Well in all my walking and interior rambling I got lost....and making my way back to the hospital....
I saw a thrift shop, a st vinny ; which we don't really have a lot of in Montreal.
So I went in and conquered!
Will you take me home with you? For supper? Of course!
I also found a 1970's plastic Xmas village. It is now in my office and I will post pictures when it is all set up.
So dream peaceful, dream big my faithful friends and readers! Remember I am making lists and I am checking them twice!
