1,583,590 people

Montreal is one big city. There are 1,583,590 people living in the city of Montreal. I have been living here for about 4 years now. And it always freaks me out when I stumble upon someone I know when just walking outside. It happened today! I was walking back home from doing my weekly grocery shoppping, carrying two filled bags, and someone passing by on a bike slows down, saying my name… I look at this person and realize it’s my cousin! She lives in Montreal but we rarely see each other, busy with our own schedules, activities, etc. It was really neat seeing her, just like that! This city isn’t so big afterall…!

    Perhaps it was meant to happen, perhaps it had meaning? If not only to make you realise just how big this city is and still so small…

    Maybe it’s like that mythical cafe in Paris, where they say that if you sit outside long enough, you’ll see someone you know walking by.
