Two Great Walks in the Bairro Português in Honor of Jane Jacobs!

The two Jane's Walks that I led on the weekend in Montreal's Portuguese neighborhood were grand successes.

About 12 people had signed up for each, but by the time we started out there were 35 to 45 each time. The weather cooperated and I think people enjoyed the ambience and the information. The videoclip below is of the song that signaled the start of the grand, successful, peaceful revolution that the Portuguese undertook 37 years ago, April 25, 1974, The ending has been a happy one in the main, and an example for other countries trying to rid themselves of dictatorships, it seems to me. I even tried to sing it at one point, and nobody laughed!
