similar way on a crowded street. Those incidents are just one more way to
open social contacts with people, assuming of course they are not done on

Earth ground level (outdoors). I'm accustomed to high buildings and
underground setup in Montreal, but the outdoor space is somewhat monopolised
by cars, and we must correct that, even in cities where people can avoid
cars by going in a 3-D setup. Let's expand people choice range and restrict
car choice range.

even under the rain or in cold weather. In fact I much prefer walking in a
rainy carfree city than in a sunny car-centric city.
