Another thing that’s different in Montreal is the absence of sidewalks in residential areas. How people are supposed to walk with strollers is a mystery. We have wonderful sidewalks where I live in the US. I had the best time of my life walking with a stroller when Klara was a baby. Of course, she’s one of those kids who refuse the stroller the moment they can exhibit a preference.

I do understand why there are no sidewalks here, though. The land is so expensive that nobody wants to waste even an inch.
