Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Today was the day for visiting Toronto downtown and soaking up the city as much as possible.
The city leapt up on me with its vibrance, colours and people, coupled with my daughter’s enthusiasm to show me around, she has made Toronto her temporary home in the last 9 months.
I experienced people in Toronto as vibrant and cheerful but not loud; they are quiet in their own way.
We started the day by going to downtown Toronto. We took the metro from Dupont station to Eaton Centre – to the Apple Store with my iPad that needed urgent attention.
This was my first experience of an Apple store ever! Great experience for a fangirl! We had to register ourselves first and were told to wait for twenty-five minutes or so. However we soon received a message that our turn was up…only to wait for someone to turn up at our table …. then came our Apple help person M who was super helpful but I don’t know how much it helped my iPad though! The store had a very lively helpful “we are your friend” kind of feel around it. I wondered how much people have to pretend to be helpful 24/7!
We then walked around downtown for a while … visited the Old City hall and the new City Hall, Chinatown, Kensington Market (which is part boho, part cool, part all kinds of things). The day was spent lunching, buying a hat,, just walking around, sitting on the sidewalk watching people go by…
Below are some pictures that can visually give you the clues about my day:
