CANADA

St. Peters Church, Montreal -----this ois a beautiful place, but with lot of stairs, so I didnt go all the way:)



Montreal Downtown--St. Catherine St...lovely place to roam around, and good chances of finding a good deal also:)



Eaton Square, Toronto.......Since that day MJ died, so one of his fan was drawingthis obituary on the entrance..picture and few lines.



Ottawa Downtown ....on Canada day..it was so lively there..everybody enjoying and having fun celebrating it.



The vibrant n lively Clifton Hill/Street @ Niagara Falls.........this street looks like a theme park, what with all those fancy rides, restaurant and shops.



Clifton Hill/Street contd....



The beautiful and magnificent Niagara Falls -----you can see the row of tourists on american side in yellow raincoats.




Another marvellous view of the falls, with the maid of the mist boat right in the middle. The maid of the mist boat is the most popular ride there, which takes you right in the centre of the falls and this experience of being there for few minutes is simply mindblowing.




Niagara Falls, Canada

Thank you for refreshing old memories. St. Peter's church in Montreal was a very humbling experience for us. The place had a very spiritual and peaceful effect on us. Toronto and Niagara are just beautiful at this time of the year. You were there at just the right time.

Rush said...

JP Joshi actually I didnt go inside, as I cant climb much:) , yes it was the right time to9 visit Canada, except that I was a little late as I missed tulips:(.

RUSH: I went thru ur link and enjoyed it thoroughly....whenevr I write I always forget something, but seems to that you dont:)

Sparkling said...

Shussshhhhhh!!! Don't give me away, I'm trying hard to be incognito and I'm totally failing here!:p

You can't be growing in the 80's and not like MJ's music. He made some awesome music and was a great performer - I totally loved seeing his performances, it was so surreal. And imagine, this was just in front of the screen.
