Trois Rivieres

Sunday 30 June 2013

I arrived in Trois Rivieres today, and went for a walk downtown with some new friends. Here's a cute little lighthouse on the St. Lawrence River.

As it was pouring rain all day, I thought it might be a good museum day. Unfortunately, so did everyone else. 

Here is a tiny bit of a piece by an amazing Quebecois painter, Jean-Paul Riopelle.

Pierre's tomb

Thursday 27 June 2013

True to tradition, I figured that while in a new city, I should check out the graveyard. This is the Notre Dame des Neiges graveyard, and this is the French-est tomb I found. Not only is his name Pierre, he chose a French inscription and has Quebec flags planted out front.

Back with baguettes

Wednesday 26 June 2013

Well, since I'm off on an exciting trip, I thought I might start up the blog again. 

I'm currently in Montreal, Quebec. I'll be in Quebec (soon in the smaller city of Trois Rivieres, and you'll have to bear with me as I haven't figured out accents on this computer yet) for six weeks, doing an intensive French immersion program. I'll be learning French as well as how to someday teach core French in elementary school.

So, for my first day, here are some baguettes!
