Your very welcome Peter.I proposed to my wife in the revolving restaraunt in Montreal in 1976.I remember the food being cold because the kitchen was in the basement.I to have very fond memories of expo67,I was 10 years old and spent my entire summer showing our out of town guests the site.I knew where everything was! I learned a lot that year. You stayed at the Sheraton Mont Royal hotel,Do you remember the Kon-Tiki restaraunt,My mom used to take me there for lunch,they would make me these fancy juice drinks with umberellas in them! A big deal when your a kid.. Sadly the hotel is no more.the metro does run under what is called Les Courts Montreal( some nice shops).If you ever decide to visit,send me a private e-mail. It would be my pleasure to show you around.

Merci Bruce; thank you ! We both trace our roots back to Canada and have visited many times to both Montreal and Quebec and also have a great time. When we were there on our honeymoon, we stayed on Longueil as I remember in a prefab motel that was expensive. There were very little accomodations to find that would have us as near; we made the best of it. On our way home we stayed in one of the most expensive hotels we could find and it was less that a night at the Worlds Fair motel. We cherished the time there after all, we were honeymooners.
And yes, the Kon-Tiki does ring a bell. The Metro was one of the cleanist subways we have ever been on.

Oh Bruce, so long ago ! I do believe that the motels that were there were constructed only for the World's Fair and I don't know if they were destined to be there after?

I am French but don't speak it; my wife did as a child and retains the ability to converse somewhat.

I think I've done most of those except for the pork roll sandwhich - my Rabbi wouldn't approve.

My son lives in Montreal so I hope to enjoy all of those places and more.

I miss the Brown Derby which I believe is no more
