I woke up early today.
Working out the kinks with my panoramic gear.
I got up at about 5:30am, maybe 6:00am. I suppose it was the sun coming through the windows that did it. I spent a few minutes writing a postcard then put on the running shoes, grabbed the tripod, camera gear and went off to the post office. There was one conveniently located just west of our hotel but in the end found a mailbox that was closer between our hotel and the Notre Dame church.
It was a pretty nice time to be out, cooing pigeons and Montreal street cleaners seemed to be the only other people wandering around. I set up my tripod with panoramic gear next to the fountain (see photo) and shot a number of photos. I'm still working out the kinks in the gear.
On my way back into the hotel I bumped into Michelle. She was on her way out to look for a drug store. With nothing better to do I joined her in her quest. With the exception of the local McDonalds and a variety store located near the student residence near the S.A.T. building everything was closed until 9am. This idea seemed incomprehensible to Kyoko who required a place to grab coffee to function.

Past and maybe present.
"Curse you Santropol!". The restaurant is closed.
A random post hopefully not referring to one's smell.

Where was this?
Michelle is not happy with the consistency of the warm Wendy's Frosty.
