Week-ends du monde



There is a lot of immigration from different countries in Montreal. All the cultures, musics, foods and so on, gather together through this Festival. The event is taking place on July 7, 8, 14 and 15 at Jean-Drapeau park.

I took the metro to Jean-Drapeau station. After I got off the metro station, I heard traditional European music. There were some performers dressed in traditional costume who were dancing on stage. In spite of the performance being quite good, I couldn't stay there for long, because it was too hot and I was too starving. 

There was a street market where multi-cultural food was being sold. I saw many people eating crepe which looked so yummy that I couldn't stop myself from desiring it. While I was asking my boyfriend to ask the woman where I could buy it, she turned her head towards us and friendly gave us the answer. I found the booth (see the photo on the lower right) which was selling the crepe with a huge line up. Inside the booth, I noticed there were a few women making the crepe so it was certainly fresh. I paid 5 dollars and got my first bite. It was unspeakably delicious. The crepe was pretty alike to Taiwanese green onion pancake but the mouthfeel was different.

After that, I tested a Turkish desert: the baklava (see the photo on the lower left). The stuff was very honest. Normally, the baklava is one piece per two dollars but he gave us the rest of two pieces per one dollar which made me so happy. 

Unfortunately, my stomach is not big enough, therefore, I couldn't eat as much food as I wanted. If the temperature was not that high that day, I could have stayed there a bit longer for the music. Overall, I wish the street market could be there everyday as the night market in Taiwan.
