April 25, 2008:
Since it's virtually impossible to see the whole of Toronto in a single day, today is day 2 for us.
We started out by meandering through Chinatown - a hive of activity and with its streets lined with chaotic signage, then continued on to the Kensington Markets the home of funky Victorian houses and imported food shops. Passing through the University district we came to the Legislative Building in Queen's Park - this much we managed on foot. From there it wasn't far to the Royal Ontario Museum which features the destinctive - Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal is made up of five interlocking cube like structures which are not actually attached to the original Royal Ontario Museum building although from some angles it appears that the structure is leaning on and being propped up by the old building next to it.
From there we hailed a taxi before our legs gave out and because we still had a ways to go! Our next destination was the Casa Loma, a castle built between 1911-14 and the former estate of Sir Henry Pellatt.
Another taxi dropped us off for our final walk about in downtown Toronto past the Flatiron Building, the Hockey Hall of Fame, Fairmont Royal York Hotel and the Union Station.
After a bite to eat, I headed back to the hotel while Rolf took in the glorious sunset and blue hour scene at the City Hall and the Nathan Phillips Square.
And so ends our two day stint in Toronto - tomorrow we head to Canada's capital city of Ottawa for more city stuff!!
The following pictures are from our photo shoot today!
