I was in Toronto for a wedding last fall. The lovely fall sunshine lasted quite a number of days during my visit, so the jet lag didn't stop me from going out for a few walks around downtown.
For transport enthusiasts, the Davisville subway yard is fully visible from pedestrian bridges hanging right above it.
Yorkville is an upscale shopping district that stretches west-to-east. At the western edge is the University of Toronto. This luxurious-looking student residence offers a commanding view of the skyline.
Old historic houses still line St. George Street.
The university was established in 1827 and is Canada's largest university.
Students dine in a historic setting.
Heading into the financial district, these buildings haven't changed much since my last visit several years ago.
The Gooderham Building's triangular shape is caused by the confluence of several streets and the 19th century waterfront. It was completed in 1892 as headquarters of the Gooderham family's industrial and commercial interests.
The density tapers off quickly east of Yonge Street, but this area is still a part of the downtown core.
The St. Lawrence Market has been a food and shopping destination for over 200 years. In the 19th century, bear meat, wild swan, and deer were available for sale here. City Hall was housed here as well from 1845-1899.
Fresh mussels and lobsters are quite cheap in Toronto. If I can get those prices in Hong Kong I'd make seafood pasta every night.
I'm starting to develop a taste for cheese after trying them on the plane. But I'm only going for the non-smelly types for now.
Steaks are also very reasonably-priced as well, although I tend to go out to a steakhouse for that rather than cooking my own.
I tend to get a bit crazy at these types of markets. I also had a photo-taking spree in Spain a few months earlier. You can check out my Andalucia threads in the forum, notably Malaga.
