Café Félin “Ma Langue aux Chats”

At the end of my day trip to Québec City, while I was was waiting for my bus back to Montreal, I stayed at Café Félin Ma Langue Aux Chats, a cat café close to both Old Québec and the bus station. The concept is similar to what can be found in Japan (and increasingly in other countries): It is a classic café, but with cats walking about. They were a bit sleepy when I visited but it was nice and relaxing after a day of walking.

Montreal Biodome

The Montreal Biodome is a greenhouse located at the Olympic Park in Montreal, near the Olympic Stadium. The building was originally designed to serve as a velodrome for the 1976 Summer Olympics. The Biodome allows visitors to walk through replicas of 5 ecosystems found in the Americas: Tropical Forest, Laurentian Maple Forest, Gulf of Saint Lawrence Marine Ecosystem,  Labrador Coast, Sub-Antarctic Islands.
