Toronto!

I am in Toronto, Canada 🇨🇦 for a few days. I was here briefly last year but didn’t see much, so this time I am trying to remedy that. 

Toronto is the largest city in Canada with a population of about 2.8 million, similar to Chicago. The greater metropolitan area is over 5 million. 

Toronto is famous for its multiculturalism and the CN Tower, the highest in the Western Hemisphere. The hockey hall of fame is here too. 


I went up the CN Tower today. The views were predictably good. Toronto is right on the Great Lake, Ontario, which seems like an ocean, it’s so huge. There are some small island and a small airport right by the harbor front. It was a nice afternoon, partly sunny, but cool, low 60s. 


After the tower visit I walked over the main railway line and over to St. Lawrence Market where there were tons of restaurants, food stalls with everything from mustard to fish to cheese to maple syrup. 

I passed an interesting dog-themed fountain along the way. 


The public transit here, a mesh of subway, buses and trams, seems quite good. I took the bus and subway to the CN Tower without incident. 

Toronto also seems very clean. It’s a nice place.
