Much has been made the past few years about eating locally, organic food, the Slow Food movement versus the Fast Food Nation - who would've thought we'd find a commentary on these very subjects at ... Montreal's Museum of Fine Arts?!???!! There for a a temporary exhibit on the forbidden city, The Warrior Emperor and China's Terracotta Army - which was super interesting - the highlight of the museum was actually Karine Giboulo's "All You Can Eat".
Not only is it a commentary on the eating habits and over consumption prevalent in North America, it also references the fact that millions of Chinese live and work in massive complexes in order to produce all that we consume. It's definitely one of the most interesting pieces I've seen in a long time at a museum, one with stunning attention to detail. There's way too much to describe with mere words ... best to let the pictures do the talking.
Like I've said before, Montreal has so much to offer - a few great hours at the museum were followed by a stroll down St. Catharine's street, a little cafe time, and a stroll through Mont Royal park. Given that this was
La Belle Province ...
... popular fast food chain in Quebec. All-dressed hot dogs with a side of poutine - this version can't touch the one from La Banquise yesterday.
the first truly nice day we've had so far, Montreal's favourite green space was the ideal place to spend a few hours on our last full day in Montreal.
