Leaving Canada

Checked out of the guesthouse and her Toronto parents picked us up and we went to the Farmers Market. Lots of good and fresh food. They then took us to feed the ducks in the snow at a park. That was fun. Then hung out at their place until we had to leave to the airport on the Subway :)

Now I am back in Houston at Jennifer's relaxing after a long and fun trip. I did not want to go home. I wanted to stay in Toronto longer. I guess I will have to come back.

Niagara Falls

Today was the Niagara Falls Tour. We got picked up right from our guesthouse. Got a little tour of Toronto on our way out. Then stopped for an opportunity for a 20 minute copter or plane ride over the falls which cost more. The plane was $89 and the copter was $114. Way to much for just an aerial view. Surprisingly 90% of the tour did it so instead of us waiting for everyone to finish, the tour guide took us somewhere that was not part of the tour. He took us to a chocolate factory to have free chocolate tasting. They were good.

Then to a vineyard for wine tasting. The place where they keep the wine barrels was cool. The wine was not that good. To give them credit, they got awards for their ice wine which I did not try. ($4 just to taste the ice wine. Not worth it.)

Then took a look at the whirl pool. Then to the falls. The tour behind the falls was also part of the tour package. It was cool to be that close to the falls.

We then ended that and saw it from the front. Amazing looking especially with the snow and ice.

We then ate at the Table Rock Restaurant with a perfect view of the falls during lunch.

Then on the way back to Toronto, it began to snow. It was so neat. We then stopped by who Jennifer calls "Her Toronto Parents" to say hi. We had some very good wine and then gave us a bottle. Then onto the cool subway to meet Jennifer's friend Ryan and his girlfriend Kathrine. We went to eat at a Japanese restaurant which included Miso soup, salad, a sushi variety plate and ice cream. Then back to Ryan's place to share the bottle of wine.

It was a great day and a fun evening.

Walking Around Toronto

We had walked though a large 3 story mall to get to the Royal Ontario Museum where we met her aunt, uncle their 2 daughters. We saw the Galleries of Africa: Egypt, Gallery of Greece, Ancient Peru Unearthed: Golden Treasures of a Lost Civilization and Heaven or Hell: Images of Chinese Buddhist and Daoist Deities and Immortals. It was amazing to see such old things including a real mummy.

We then left her aunt and uncle to eat at the Future Bakery. He had Pierogis which were really good and an oreo cheesecake which was also really good.

We then took a subway to Lake Ontario. It is so big it looks like it is an ocean not a lake. Parts of it where still frozen.

We then went to Queen West. A district with lots of shops and a variety of restaurants. We went to a really good Indian restaurant. What a great city.

To Canada

I left for Toronto with Jennifer this afternoon. This will be the 1st time I have been to Canada. Used my passport and got it stamped. Went through customs which was not a big deal as I thought and heard. We then took a bus to the subway. The public transportation in Tornoto is amazing. It was so easy to get around without a car unlike LA and Houston. The subways are fast and for me it was fun riding them. We arrived at the Spadina stop, walked outside and there was our hotel. How easy was that. We stated at the Global Guesthouse. A nice place. Homier than a hotel. A real funky room though. It was like a B and B without the breakfast.

We then met her friend Danny and went to the Kinston District and had Thai. We then went to a pub for a beer. I had an apple cider beer which was pretty good. It was nice to meet and visit with him. Then back to the guesthouse for my 1st night in Canada.
