#5: Escalator etiquette. I've mentioned this to some before, and it's a simple thing but it gives me great pleasure. Here, when you come up out of the subway on the escalators, people stay on the right hand side allowing others (me) to walk up quickly. In Australia, people stand in couples or groups or right in the middle so that there is no choice for you but to stand still, ascending at a ridiculously slow pace, feeling pretty much trapped. So thank you Montréal, for letting me use my legs!
#6: The supermarkets don't seem to stock free-range eggs or chooks. I keep looking, but I can't see 'em..
#7: Nobody else here thinks squirrels are cute. I myself can't get enough of them. Yesterday I saw one which was pure white - my first albino sciuridae encounter. I thought it was beautiful.
