Montreal Sundry: Graffiti Snake

The more I travel, the more I realize just how special Montreal is. That isn’t to say that I could live here forever, but it’s definitely a place like no other – a city built on idiosyncrasies and zested with quirk. A place where all and sundry exists together.

To share some of my favourite bits, I’ll be doing a casual series of posts whenever I find something cool around (which I’m accordingly going to name “Montreal Sundry”).

The first one I’d like to share is one of my favourite bits of graffiti just outside the Palais des Congrès and Chinatown.

Nowadays Montreal celebrates its street art, but this piece has been around since I was a kid and graffiti was still just graffiti.

As someone with a photographic memory, it’s become one of my main landmarks in the city: I can’t help but feel at home whenever I catch sight of it.

And so I thought it would be a great way to start off these posts.

For those who have been to Montreal, what are some of your favourite bits? (I might even feature these in a future post!)

  1. I found this one! Finally! And then I was thinking “where did I read about it?” It was here, on this blog. So cool.
    So hard to choose favourite bits. There are so many. It is a city of so many fabulous bits…like a puzzle with each piece a delightful individual art that when put together create one masterpiece.
