SUNDAY, JUNE 19
i. street fair!
main madness is a four-day, 24-hour-a-day street fair on st-laurent boulevard ("the main") that takes place twice a summer. after a few days of rain and gloom, the sun finally came out on sunday.
waiting for the 80 bus on park avenue.
getting off at sherbrooke, we walk a few blocks down to st-laurent.
according to my girlfriend, the tattoo means "pig." its owner was asian, though, so i assume it's some pet name.
say NO to cowboy-hatted hipsters.
he sure looks happy.
finally at the corner of st-laurent and rachel, about 3/4 of a mile up from sherbrooke.
HOW TO MAKE A CHURRO
1. squeeze the dough out of a churro machine.
2. inject it with caramel and deep fry it.
3. roll it in sugar.
4. feed it to happy customers.
we've reached the end of the street fair: st-laurent and mont-royal.
the alleys of mile end
it's another 1.5 miles from mont-royal to my home, so i continue up through the alleys and streets of mile end.
