Bonnie said, "I can remember Greg and Wyona driving us here. I can remember the slight smile on Greg's face when he told us that the building was controversial - constructed with the pipes on the outside that would normally be up in the ceilings and covered. That was 30 years ago."

At midnight we left the square to walk back to the Louvre. We found our now familiar bus stop, rather than taking the faster metro home. The sign said 16 minutes until the #68 arrives. So we walked a few more blocks toward the opera house and in the direction that the bus would be coming from, just to keep walking along the streets.

We wandered by the Nine Wave Buildling (Grand Ondes), staring in at the large window where the description of the building takes the form of the window dressing.
We would step backward to the curb to get a better look at the building and then return to the window for more of the words about its architectural form.
The woman from whom we are letting the flat left us a five page, single spaced exposition of the house and the neighbourhood which has come in handy.
I have especially liked her telling of the ethnic store down the block that has scalper prices. Don't use the store unless it is late at night and you have no where else to shop.
That is us.

Last night we needed toilet paper.
We needed it the night before as well, but Rebecca says she just couldn't pick up on.
Only fushia and canary yellow were available and that seemed just wrong.
Still last night, it had to be purchased ... at scalper prices.
