Walking Yoshi in St. Henri

If you are going to live in a poor part of town, Montréal is the best city I can think of.  Gorgeous architecture, beautiful parks, clever art installations, and spontaneous artistic expression.  Yoshi and I enjoy our walks in St. Henri.

Note the two office swivel chairs parked there.  I have seen people sitting there and working on laptops. I think I saw a media interview there once. (Bikepath St. Henri)
