Every now and then, I share pictures of Africa with you in a post. That is what I would like to do today!
What can you expect to find in this set of pictures?
Lots of food photos, some skylines, water environments, of course, because I love hanging out near water and, unusually, quite a few photos of me.
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, sorry for the repetition: I promise I am only sharing the best of my Instagram gallery, though.
I hope you like them.
Without further ado, here goes…

No. 4: College Residence
The other day, my friend sent me this picture because she happened to be at a place where she visited me 25 years ago for Spring Break during my freshman year at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
This hall, McConnell Hall, is adjacent to the one I lived in, Molson Hall (), but it was this sight–seeing McConnell Hall–that made one breathe a sigh of relief after the steep, unforgiving daily climb up Mount Royal from campus to Upper Residence.
After this, the incline flattened out and you knew the worst was behind you.
