My commute normally looks like this. And usually worse. Cars don’t move much on the Decarie Expressway in Montreal, at any time of day.
Yesterday, my commute looked like this. I walked from a service centre located at the corner of Decarie and Van Horne, up to HEC Montreal. Many people passed me. Apparently I’m out of practice. It was steamy and my laptop felt a bit more desktopy after a few minutes. And then I discovered a whole new world, of families, children, public schools, corner stores, and plenty of flowers. I have lived in Montreal all of my life. And yesterday’s walk taught me that there is still a lot to see.
