Montreal (Part One)

I love this city … at least, when it’s not winter.

I was riding the Metro toward downtown from Le Plateau-Mont-Royal , and a young man boarded my tram. He behaved as if he had some sort of mental disability. I’m no doctor, so I can’t be more specific.

His exuberance, however, was infectious. He was very excited to be going to McGill. He jerkily walked up and down the tram, laughing and incoherently rambling in a slurred speech. He walked up to me twice, looked me in the eye, smiled, and exclaimed, “I’m going to McGill!”

The other passengers smiled, as well. How could you not be happy for him?

The train’s loudspeaker signaled, “Prochain station … McGill.” When the train came to a stop, he proudly proclaimed, “I’m going to see my girlfriend in McGill!” and hopped off the train.

At any rate, here are some pictures of beautiful Montreal!
