I am from India, and I have been living in Montreal since 2018. I am a Ph.D. student at McGill university. In Montreal, I walk and bicycle around to explore the historical monuments and community life in different neighborhoods. Montreal is a beautiful city with a diverse historical and cultural heritage. The first thing that attracted me to the city was its historical heritage. The Old Port and its historical monuments tell us how Montreal emerged as an important city in North America. The sites of religious heritage, such as St. Joseph Oratory and Notre Dame Basilica, are favorites of mine and I take my friends when they visit Montreal. Secondly, while Montreal has a rich Anglophone and Francophone cultural heritage, the minority heritage (Italian, Chinese, Middle Eastern, South Asian, East Asian, and Caribbeans) is also very present in the city. The neighborhoods such as Little Italy, Outremont, Mile-End, China Town, and the Plateau are a few of the places I visit to experience the city's cosmopolitan culture. I visit such neighborhoods live to learn more about these communities and their culture. I experience their cuisines, specifically from family-run restaurants. Family-run restaurants are unique to the food culture of Montreal. Many family-run restaurants have a rich tradition of serving food for over five decades. In the summer, I also enjoy walking and trying street foods on different boulevards specifically reserved for pedestrians. Finally, I also enjoy attending Musical events in the city performed by various artists worldwide.
