I woke up in this hotel, which was actually a dormitory:
There was a plastic sheet over the mattress, and shared bathrooms on each floor.

At 9:30am, I went on a bike tour.
I think hiring a tour guide as soon as you get to a new city is the best investment one can make as a traveler.
The bike tour was very good. Check them out at http://www.caroulemontreal.com
Now I'm at a tea shop, tasting teas — Ming Tao Xuan near the famous Nortre Dam cathedral.
