  1. Thille : Old & New

    Thille is mostly a modern city now but a few churches hint at its past : The Old Church (Sainte Ermentrude), which was once the main piece of a fortified town, long gone since, and Sainte-Apotolska, built later by the first immigrants in the region (Polish farmers). Sainte-Ermentrude and Sainte-Apostolska were the biggest, in fact the only, towns of the place. They have been absorbed, as all their much smaller sisters, by the growing city. Those churches' proud spires, once the highest buildings in the region, are now dwarfed by condos towers and such. So it goes. 1. Sainte-Ermentrude 2. 3. Sainte-Apostolska : 4. 5. On the right bank, near City Hall (upgraded several time as the city was booming, from its first, small, pink original building), there is also Ste-Christine, a grander church, Eighteenth Century baroque style ; the fire station alarms ring louder than its bells, now. Right on the other side of the road, the Tourism Office. 6. Everywhere the mushrooming city comes right up close to the fields : 7. It is indeed a big city now nevertheless, with a keen eye for entertainment. On the right bank, in front of the City Hall Complex, the aptly albeit unimaginatively named “The Megaplex”, provides popular films and fun for all ages – having killed most of the city's other small movie theaters in the process ; 8. 9. The Moondance Century Theatre, in the quieter suburbs, has managed to survive by offering quality programming and film festivals. 10. Closer to Downtown, the Denis Rivard Convention Center (named after the first mayor) doubles as the city's Theatre and Opera (the accoustics are to die for, the afficionados say). 11. This neighbourhood is in fact the cultural hub of the city,000 and also of some of its commercial entertainement, with the Rivard Center, its subterranean semi-open commercial Plaza (never snows or rains in Thille, apparently !) and the PKO Radio Building, which also sports a small auditorium (that's where P. R. gave a few readings and lectures.) 12. 13.
  2. Thille : Downtowns

    1. There are two downtowns in Thille, one on each bank -- a good thing too, as there are few bridges linking North and South Thille (more about that later). But the real one is on the right bank of the Sainte-Croix river, i.e. North. That's where the big skyscrapers are, harbingers of Things to Come, although they have not replaced all the middle wealth commercials that came before ; some small houses even resist obdurately, but they won't last long (you have to really look for them...) 2. Hey, P. R. found some of her books in the bookshop when she arrived , near the airport shuttle (you can see a bit of the shuttle parking on the top...) 5. That part of downtown is decidedly subdued, albeit prosperous 6. 7. But this is where it's at : 8. In all modern cities, malls small and big are often places of entertainment, where you go shopping – which can be entertaining in itself – but also to meet friends, have a nice cup of coffee and some fun. Thille has developed the concept or commercial entertainment to its utmost : its really big commercial centers are also cultural centers. The case in point is the Desjardine Commerce Center, known locally as "Blue" (on the left). Its architect, Paule-Marie Desjardine, was then the rather young daughter of one of Northey Lake RISFI's "hippies", but no one laughed at her when she proposed her plan for the new commercial center. It was instead officially hailed as a splendidly daring project (dissenting voices were drowned in the applauds). Not far from it is the Omega Municipal library (on the right , also affectionately dubbed "The Spaghetti", another Desjardine's design. It hosts workshops of all kinds, literary festivals (guess what P. R. went to Thille for ?) and the Art Department of the modular regional university. 9. And you can buy a lot of Stuff in-between more highbrow endeavours : 10. We'll visit Blue and Omega next time. P. R. is feeling sleepy...
  3. Poutine City

    Among all the cities and towns visited par P. R. in her travels, Poutine City is certainly so far the most un-fancy : a no-nonsense, daily-grind kind of city. Not actually a city in itself but the creeping eastern borough of a larger metropolis, Caraway. Poutine is not even its real name (it is Caraway East), but that’s what the inhabitants call it, because it developped quite quickly and a lot of people had to be housed fast, so the Mayor wanted sturdy : lots of prefabs and concrete buildings jammed together on a grid, the most people in the smaller space for your buck. Of course, with time, a few higher-end buildings sprouted up here and there, but most of Poutine City's architecture is downright utilitarian 1.The Grammercy Hospital (on the smallish side -- Poutine is home to 250 000 people) but there are several big clinics all around town. 2. seen from the back ; most of Poutine's sport fields are there too ; upper right, the small Grammercy College : 3. Commerce Place : 4. Still busy in the evening : 5. Industry : 6. A few family homes manage to hold on : 7. Fast Food Row : 8. There are of course all the amenities : schools, sport fields, a rather quaint but pretty little city hall, near the St-Benigne cathedral : 9. There are also places where the citizens can breathe and relax at the the end of a dutifully busy day, like the peaceful ST-Benign cemetery Park, or the Zoo (a small, urban affair, but the kiddies like it) : 10. 11. Just beside the Zoo is the the Windy Park – “thrice windy”, P. R. was told : named after the Mayor’s daughter, no straight lines in sight and always sporting a refreshing breeze (yeah, I know ; the daughter’s name is Wendy, of course ; but the Poutinians like bad wordplay). Now P. R. is going back home. Her travelling season is over for a while. She must work on her next book. And I must tidy up my plugins -- again -- or my nifty system will break down under the sheer weight of all the Stuff I DLed in the past months. I also must plot P. R 's next forays into the blue yonder, with all I've learned since I began this CJ. Thanks to all of you who followed this little CJ, liked it, commented on it, gave me pointers and cogent criticism. I will try to do right by you in ny next endeavours. I might post a few pictures of tests now and then, but mostly, I lurk here on other CJs (and surely comment once in a while !:-)
