Default Finally Saw Canada II

I've been a massive Lighfoot fan for the past few years and finally got across the Atlantic to Toronto last week. What an incredible country and city! Toronto was so cool, so clean, so vibrant! Just a great place.

My knowledge of Canada was a bit skewed, I'd only ever heard of Yonge Street because of the song! Quiet the street in it's own right though! Last Sunday I was lining up for a movie (Canadians sure love lines!) at the Elgin Theatre when I looked up to see Massey Hall right above me! A nice surprise!

I also visited Montreal which was pretty cool and reminded me a lot of being here in Europe. I could have been in Geneva or some such place.

All in all, it was just a fantastic country to visit! And Toronto has a special place in my heart already!

Travelled from Ireland. Yeah I was actually in a TIFF line myself when I spotted Massey Hall!

Great weather I was walking around Leslieville on Tuesday and had to buy suncream!

Sounds like you had a great time. Too bad you didn't hit it when he was performing nearby. There's always next time.
