Old Water Pipe

Montreal's infrastructure is aging resulting in sudden emergency repairs. Last week the water was turned off in my neighbourhood for a day while they repaired a leaky pipe. It certainly reminds one how much we depend on water. Work continues there with large holes in the street still exposed.

We went to a restaurant before a play and encountered yet another such emergency. It is hard to imagine this pipe bringing clean water. The restaurant was functioning without water for a few hours, but the meal was still delicious.


  1. This is really yucky - I thought at first it was a hollowed trunk! I can't imagine drinking water flowing through it.

  2. Water is one of the things we take granted for and we realize its importance when we lose it. The restaurant is a real professional. Good for you, Susan, that you could have delicious meal under that situation
