Why I'm happy in Montreal (one of ten happiest places to live according to Lonely Planet)

bagels, smoked meat, the bottomless coffee cup, free French lessons, it's civilised, bike paths, St Ambroise beer, the view from Mount Royal lookout (see above), sun in summer, snow in winter, ice-skating on Beaver Lake, cross-country skiing in city parks, everyone loves to be outside, garage sales all summer, the Metro but best of all I love Montreal for the questions Montrealers ask me. What's an ASBO, what's a yob, what does glassing mean and what's a chav? That's because they've never lived in Britain.
