toronto, you’re pretty and nice, but…


It’s nice to get away.

It’s been a long day– It seemed like I didn’t really sleep last night. I kept looking at the clock, and then waking up at 3AM to get on our early flight. Tried to sleep on the plane, but was tossing and turning.

Finally arriving…So happy seeing my sister.
Her apartment is on the sixteenth floor. It’s very unnerving being up so high…

We walked in the warm sun and admired the green grass and potted flowers!
got lunch… and shopped around.

There are so many people here. It is fast, and the buildings are tall.

Did I mention that there are so many people?—Today, I felt reminded by the city that I am just a bug. So many people who dress the same, so many people that walk so fast.

The pace is different here. It really is so different than how my life is in Saskatoon.

I am really enjoying it here so far– it’s a nice change of scenery.

I will maybe prematurely say that on day one– it’s just not for me. But Toronto, I will keep an open mind!

Salmon, scallops and rice and things for dinner

Tonight we are going to a comedy club– and seeing two friends that I haven’t seen in a long time!

Fun!

    1. Saskatoon, SK. It’s much smaller! I have not been to Ottawa for years but I do remember liking it very much!
