My Montreal childhood left a strong impression on me. It was a city that I could engage with. I lived in full view of its mountain and downtown, and within an easy walk of the metro that took me there. Not only that, but one of its features meandered right by my suburb: the Seaway Canal. I could watch ships go by as I walked to the outdoor pool. They came from Elsewhere. Occasionally I got to go Elsewhere too. Here are travelogues of some of those places:
