Thanks for the information! I am glad you like my blog :) However, I am not a specialist in Algerian history so thanks again for letting us know about ”Naili” portraits and if you know more you can always talk to us about it :)
Once again I am very sorry for this lack of real blog posts lately. Honestly, thank God , I am very grateful because I never traveled that much this summer. Like you saw, I went to France, Belgium, Hawaii and NYC, but before that I had the chance to do some business travelings inside Canada, more specifically inside Quebec.
The spot I want to talk to you about is Metis. It’s a small village located in the very beginning of the St-Lawrence river. They call it the low St-Lawrence since the river gets smaller closer to Montreal. The particularity with Metis is that it has a community of French and English speaking persons who live together in the same village. A lot of those people have summer houses ( more like huge houses, I really thought we were in a movie seriously) in Metis. A lot of them, come in Metis to spend their summer there.
My 2 favorite spots in Metis were:
1) Café sur mer
Janis the owner is such a great host. You know how I love coffee, so I can reassure you that this place has met and has gone beyond my expectations. Good coffee, nice atmosphere, people are so nice and easy to talk to. You know there’s no wifi inside café sur mer, because if you want to be connected you should rather go to the wifi room in the back of the store or better get connecting with real people. Seriously, that’s the moto here, no wifi ! Socialize !
2) My second favorite spot was the beach !
So relaxinnnng !! Metis beach was empty because I realized that Metis has much more elders than anything around there. It’s the kind of place where you go to relax, read books while sipping coffee and meeting new and the kindest of people.
I hope you learned something today :)
