Toronto October 2010

October 29 - November 2, 2010

Saturday 29th


A view of downtown Austin as we fly out.


And you can see where I live.


And here is downtown Toronto.



Sheraton Centre was at a great location, although a little noisy the first night due to Halloween revelers. And yes, there is some sort of church bell every hour too.
#26 of 120



Took a $50 taxi ride to eat at the Caribbean restaurant Room Service.


Sunday 30th


View of the old city hall from my window.


Rich and I hit Tim Hortons, a Canadian institution.




For Hollywood films they often film New York City shots here in Toronto.


I believe I got my first Swatch here, when I was last in Toronto circa 1985.











It was a very cold day, with the first snow of the season falling on us. We stopped for lunch at a toasty place right by CN Tower before heading up.










A monument to Chinese immigrants.


The new city hall, which was also outside my window.

Then we saw the newly released Matt Damon movie Hereafter, it was pretty good.


And closed out a full, fun day of touristing at the local poutinerie.



I had the cheesesteak version of poutine, and there was way too much to eat.

Monday

Tuesday

Fly home
