This is a view from the lab. We happen to be on the 6th floor and get a great view of the city everyday. (My guess is that these were put in to keep the scientists happier.) In other research news, after my trip from Nova Scotia, I'll be doing behavioral experiments galore. The great thing about behavioral research is that you can get data relatively easily and quickly, but the preparation with the animals, etc. takes a lot of time. But more about that at a later time.
Alright, a picture that I hadn't uploaded at the time but should have included in my last post was one of Cirque du Soleil:
The iconic circus tent can be seen from pretty much all parts of the port near Old Montreal.
And now to Quebec City:
My friend Anthony and I went Quebec City for the weekend, and we got to catch the last celebratory bits (some parties) of Fete Nationale du Quebec on June 23-24, or the Quebec "National" Holiday. I use the quotes, since well Quebec isn't independent...even though some want to secede. I shall refrain from any political judgments in this entry, since it wouldn't be very guest-like.
This is a view from the port/coast area. It was truly beautiful, especially with the excellent weather.
We also ran into these guys who did cool acrobatic stuff. I actually got pulled in to participate in one of the acts along with 5 other guys. We had to lie on the ground next to each other and one of the performers did a horizontal flip across all of us! It was pretty cool, especially since I've always wanted to be a part of these street acts. In summary, the city of Old Quebec has many little restaurants, bars, pubs, and cafes
