First Week in Toronto

My first week in Toronto offered a lot of excitment: fire (possibly) (I’m pretty sure I smelt fire when I ran down the stairs in the hotel), an earthquake (a tiny little one), a severe thunderstorm (with flooding) and riots (more about that in the next post). And here are some of the things I discovered during Week 1:

Funny little creatures frolicking across the green, green grass


Old and new side by side:


Lovely pictures on buildings:


Beautiful decorations in a street full of pretty shops:


One large market hall, stuffed to the brim with people:


A birdie bath:


A church (which, strangely enough, doesn’t smell like European churches – none of the churches in Toronto smells like a European church, not even the Catholic one!) (most disconcerting to walk into a church and to realise that it doesn’t smell right)

A very nice shopping center (these are not real birds!) (but aren’t they pretty?):

More nice houses:

REFLECTIONS!!!!! (I am quite taken with them):


More beautiful decorations (is that supposed to be a squirrel or a beaver?):


Oh, oh, look: reflections ahead!


But first: sunshiny prettiness:


And now the reflections:

Pretty houses:


Other pretty houses

Giant creepy-crawlies climbing about a house:


Gargoyles on the tower of the Town Hall:

Some TV trucks (picture taken especially for Matze):


And here’s the sight from my window:
