FOR A CHANGE OF PACE we go to the always-interesting Latin Quarter, which, like Paris, is jammed with students. Drinking beer in the huge beer garden at St.Sulpice is required, as is tea at Camellia Sinensis. This is an excellent homage to Montreal, especially the information from locals on what they love most about the city.
