2020/02/23 Jennifer in the SJ Popup Choir's Hamiltunes Performance at the Art Boutik
π 2020-02-23 01:01 in Public
After weeks of training and practise, Jennifer was able to perform for the first time in Hamiltunes (unfortunately all previous times had date conflicts). She did well :)
Jennifer is however quite sad to already know that the next performance date will conflict with the 3 days she not available to attend in May :(

The other people in the cast also did really well. Some of them had performed Hamiltunes several times by now and some gave pro/semi-pro performances.
While a small portion of the cast has had some performance/singing training, others did not and learned on the job. All the performers are doing this for fun, some even got their own costumes.









2020/02/20 Montreal's Ecomuseum Zoo
π 2020-02-20 01:01 in Museums, Public
Not too sure why a wildlife preserve is called an 'ecomuseum', but putting that aside, this small but interesting preserve for animals that were usually wounded and cannot go back to the wild.
Mormally when you go in the dead of winter, and it's -15C outside, you shouldn't expect to see much, but of course Canadian animals are used to the cold, so outside of a couple that were hibernating, the rest were out and about :)

It was a fun 2.5H, outside of how damn cold it was and my not having enough layers to stay outside in such cold that long :)

The lynx were a highlight for me, they totally looked and behaved like house cats that happen to be bigger and walk in the snow :)


hard to know if they would have bitten your hand off had you tried to pet them :)

There were other animals of course:




even the ducks were fine with the cold

They had a few indoor exhibits, which were great to warm me up





Despite the cold, it was definitely fun, it's a bit out of the way if you are in Montreal, but on your way to the airport, it's a perfect stop
