Lovely. People clearly take pride in the renovaions. I always look at the windows because even in my own building, each window had to be measured carefully to put in the double glazing since every single window in a building like that is different from the other windows.
Laval does an annual music festival, Les trois elephants. There's a long list of possibly well-known pop performers that we two Americans have never heard of, but one time while we were there during the festival we came across a free street performance by teenage students, Le juke box orchestra. We loved them. The kids have great energy. Their director, wearing red sneakers in these photos, is especially vivacious every time we've seen them perform.
So happy to see the continuation of this report. The architectural pictures mostly look like something out of a fairy tale, including scary stuff like the 2nd picture in #32. What fun to see all of that followed by the happy street performers.
