What’s inside Moon Living Abroad in Canada
Here’s what author Carolyn B. Heller loves about Canada:
- The ocean, downtown high-rises, and snow-topped mountains are all right outside my window.
- People are nice, people are tolerant, and they don’t make a big deal about how nice and tolerant they are.
- Toronto has five Chinatowns.
- British Columbia has a desert.
- Montréalers move effortlessly between French and English.
- The United States isn’t the center of the political universe.
- Skiing, sailing, hiking, bicycling, kayaking, camping– even when you live in the city, all these activities are close by, and people do them.
- Croissants for breakfast, sushi for lunch, and wild salmon, local greens, and bumbleberry pie for dinner.
- Maple syrup on snow.
- Gravy on french fries.
- Not having to worry about health insurance.
