Rue St.Paul | Old Montreal

Rue St. Paul with the hole in the middle. This is my favorite street in the whole Montreal. When we first came to this city in 2012, we stayed in little boutique hotel on this street, Le Petit Hotel. This street has everything – art galleries, souvenir shops, more art galleries, the best restaurants in the city. But most of all I fell in love with the old buildings..and did I say art galleries? I am nuts about art. This is one of my biggest requirements for the city. It needs to have art, amazing art. I was spoiled enough to be living next to Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, crazy awesome collection of impressionist art.  I used to just sit there..and stare. Some people meditate, I go to museums.
