October 13th – Beaux Arts in Montreal
We emerged from our subterranean tunnel close to the Musee de Beaux Arts, the city's excellent Fine Arts Museum. The museum has been a beneficiary of donations from the city's wealthiest collectors, so it's amassed a surprisingly good collection of European art – including some very interesting El Grecos, Breughels, and Memlings.
If you're going to find a place to shelter from the cold, then this was a pretty good place to do it.
