Looks like you're near Sherbrooke and St. Denis - must be the Berri-UQUAM Metro stop. That's the main Metro stop which will connect you to everything. St .Denis street is a great street to walk - north to the Platueau, and south to the Latin quarter. You're a bit of atrek to downtown - maybe a ood 20 minutes - but very doable if it's nice out.

What about the trek up to Mt Doom? Or down to Chinatown, which is actually located in China????

Novice! Next time you guys come down I'll plan a Tour de L'ile along the bike path on foot. Backwards!

You guys go right ahead with that plan. I'll be stopping by our old stomping ground (the Hotel Europa BW) and see if Eric is still pouring a mean martini. You can pick me up on your way back.

Purdy, there's a little fruit/vegie market in Chinatown that sells durian. You'll have no problem finding it as the durian smell wafts down the street for about 3 blocks.

Oooohhhh - and go to Cafe Cora for breakfast!! (I think that's the name - has Cafe and Cora in it.) Much better than Eggspectations and cheaper too. Go early as it does get busy. ;)

Heather - the weather is always crazy this time of year. Last week we went up to about 13 C, and today it's going down to -5 and we're expecting flurries for the next 2 days. The beginning of May can be warm or chilly - it depends on the day. You won't need winter clothes (no boots, wool coat or scarf), but you may need a warm sweater and a hat, depending on how long you'll be out and where you're going. I've seen mid 20s in the middle of May as well as temperatures hovering around 0. There's really no telling.

And bring glam if you like - there's plenty of upscale places to visit, from restaurants to theatre to just walking around downtown.
