The flight of 9.5 hours by airbus was easily transferred. This is not 19, as flew through Amsterdam to Bali! TV, books, and now, he is an unfamiliar airport.

Standard questions – where, why, for how long, and the condition for importing foreign currency – an amount over 10,000 Canadian dollars must be declared. Border guards, customs – hard.

Monland Land

Monkland Avenue is one of the largest streets in Montreal, and in addition, it is the most important trade artery of the Monkland Village area. On the street there are many shops, restaurants and boutiques that attract the attention of tourists.

Monkland Avenue was named after Sir James Monk, the homeowner whose mansion was one of the first to be built here.
