my Jane’s Walk

Today and tomorrow are Jane’s Walk days.

Jane’s Walk is a series of free neighbourhood walking tours that helps put people in touch with their environment and with each other, by bridging social and geographic gaps and creating a space for cities to discover themselves.

There are 16 official Jane’s Walks for Montreal, but I ended up improvising my own. I walked to a friend’s place, had tea, Baby Bels and good conversation about how important it is to have friends in the neighbourhood, and walked home again. It sounds banal, but it was really really nice and reminds me how good it is to have friends in your own neighbourhood – something that hasn’t been the case for me in years.
