A church is not such an atypical building for westerners but it is quite particular for an Asian girl like me. Of course we do have churches in Taiwan, but they are different from the churches which are so popular in this country. The Notre-Dame Basilica is a historic building where Celine Dion got married in 1994. Because of that, I paid an admission fee of CAD$5 to get inside the building. Inside it was surprisingly peaceful and quiet, and it didn't smell the same as in temples in Taiwan. A friend of mine even slept in the church, she said it was so comfortable that she couldn't help. Naturally she kept a praying position so that nobody would notice that she was sleeping.
