City Hall, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Chateau Ramezay Museum opposite City Hall.
Built for Claude de Ramezay, governor of Montreal from 1704 until his death in 1724,
it is now a cool museum depicting the lifestyles of Quebec's elite colonists.

An old American flag flies outside to recall the time in 1776
when Benjamin Franklin and Benedict Arnold
used the building as their headquarters,
while occupying Montreal during the American Revolution.

Two views of the Olympic Tower. You reach the top by that curious
Quebeçois form of transportation, the funiculaire.

Montreal hosted the Olympic Games in 1976.
These were the games when Nadia Comaneci scored the first 10's
(and 7 of 'em!) ever awarded in Olympic gymnastics competition.
She was fourteen--how old were YOU?!

In case you're wondering, Montreal has 3.4 million people.
