Three more days in the big T


in Daily updates, Toronto, Travel

Until Wednesday evening, I will be in Toronto for a conference. Does anybody know about any interesting plays, shows, art exhibitions, and so forth that are ongoing in the city now or happening during that timespan? Options that are inexpensive and unusual would be preferred.

My days will be full, but the evenings are pretty much completely free. Photos from the expedition will emerge when next I can bring my camera and my main computer into contact with one another.

Have you been to the Toronto Islands? If it’s not too dark, you can check out an amazing type of urban park for $6 ferry ride.

Darn! If I wasn’t chained to my computer and locked in the library studying for finals I would come hang out with you….next time?

Grab a free music and entertainment paper.

They are everywhere.

You may be returning to snow in Ottawa.

The Toronto Islands are quite nice, though it doesn’t seem this trip will involve a visit there.


Meeting up with you in Toronto would be great. I will be here sometime in November, and will definitely let you know when.

-We got a dusting of snow in Toronto last night, also, though it didn’t stick.

Splendid of you to drop by whilst you were conferencing. It snowed a bit today while I was in class.

Snow in October + Vancouverite = confusion and fear.

Heading home, I couldn’t help thinking of this:

When the train left Edinburgh
The passengers’ hearts were light and felt no sorrow,
But Boreas blew a terrific gale,
Which made their hearts for to quail,
And many of the passengers with fear did say-
“I hope God will send us safe across the Bridge of Tay.”
