Knowing and Understanding the Neighborhoods of the World

With over 140 languages and dialects spoken in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, this metropolis is clearly one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world.  Restaurants can be found for every one of the languages spoken in Toronto. There is even an aisle for international foods in many of the city’s grocery stores. 

Multiple cultural festivals, shows and celebrations are also commonplace in this great city I live in. So when I started to write Kidnapping of the Diamond Eyes Gingerbread Cookie, the first book of the Series Declan the Kid Detective, I made sure to inject the diverse culture l live in into this book.

Aside from entertaining readers, one of my main goals in writing this series is to educate readers about some of the many cultures in the world, their history and customs. I want readers to go to their computers and Google the country in question to learn fact from fiction and in the process of doing this learn something new about a people, a race and a country. We all inhabit the same world. Why can’t we learn and understand more about the people we live with?

Question: Is the city you live in culturally diverse? If so, how?
