As previously mentioned, the boyfriend and I took a very cold trip to Toronto during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Since we’re not that great at taking pictures, here’s the random collection of photos we managed to take between two iPhones and a camera.
Dinner the first night at the hotel’s fancy restaurant. There were windows surrounding the circular-shaped restaurant, though it was a super-foggy night.
We visited the St. Lawrence Market on the first morning, which awesome to the max (in Joel’s terms). It was like those places Anthony Bourdain visits in Europe or South Asia, and we enjoyed a freshly-made breakfast crepe in the market’s basement. Sooo many bloody cuts of meat and giant cheese wheels.
Joel and I wrote down several of our observations about life in Canada and Toronto while we were there. I won’t list them here because they’re probably slightly offensive / silly / politically incorrect, but one of the things we’ll forever associate with the Great White North are the fleeing exit men.
What’s a post-Christmas vacation without EXTREME BOXING WEEK SALES!? We visited Toronto’s Eaton Centre to escape the cold, only to be overwhelmed by it’s suffocating mall-ness and crazy Canadian crowds.
