I’m way too tired, hot, sticky, and sunburned to compose actual sentences. At 11PM, it’s still 23° (although I saw 27° downtown) with 85% humidity. I would choose the nastiest heatwave of the summer for my visit, wouldn’t I?

Would it be an oversimplification to suggest that Canada is like the US with more attractive money and less bullshit?

Feels more like the West Coast in that regard. I had the good fortune of visiting in 2002 when the Canadian dollar was at an all-time low and kept feeling a little guilty at how little I was paying for everything.

  3. Coincidentally, my very first visit to Toronto was thirty years ago this past weekend. I didn’t do anything quite as interesting as you that first time. I was only fifteen, after all…
