I am home now as you can see. I had a great time in Ontario. They said it was mine to discover so I decided to explore and keep it. Thanks for the province! I have adopted Toronto as my second city. Like a second boyfriend kind of... But this city is only for fun. Well it's fun unless you work there. I went down to Front street at rush hour and no one looked like they were having fun but me and my Mum. She enjoyed my dragging her to the CBC to take a bunch of pictures and buy some stuff at the CBC gift shop. I asked about tours of the building but they are not set up for that 'right now'.
To give them some credit there is a free museum with Friendly Giant,
and Mr. Dressup stuff. That was cool. I read the guestbook signed by schoolchildren and one boy wrote 'I love you Mr. D.' (Soo cute shortening Mr. Dressup to Mr. D.)

I was the only person in Toronto wearing an orange tie dye tshirt today not to mention an orange Jazz fest hat.. I liked it that way. I noted the colours people were wearing and orange was not one of them. C'est pas grave, I never followed fashion.
I took a tour of Toronto by bus. That is one thing I have never done before. I have been to Toronto maybe 20 times or more throughout my lifetime. I found out on the tour that there is a nudist beach in Toronto, did you know that? Did you need to know that? I found out lots of stuff on the tour... What else did I learn? The history of buildings of interest, including my Fathers alma matter the U of T. Lots of things like the cost or the personality behind the building. All kinds of facts I bet Torontonians never knew. I have taken a walking tour of Montreal architecture in years past, and learned a great deal too. If you live in any city you should take a local tour. You never know what you are missing.
