The last week or so…

Hi all!

Well I’ve been a bit quiet over the last week here so here is a quick catchup. Wednesday and Thursday I was unwell and stuck in bed/the place I am staying. On Friday I still felt unwell but made an outing which made me feel better. On Friday evening I did something unexpected; which was to go up the CN Tower. The glass sided lift to the top of the tower was scary, as the CN tower is the tallest free standing structure on the planet. It took 58 seconds to get to the top at a speed of 22km an hour(might have to double check those figures)!. I walked around the inside and outside viewing platforms and stood for a few seconds on the glass floor. Looking through the glass floor you could see the Rogers Center Stadium directly below and there was a baseball game in play.

Well I’m coming to the end of my time in Canada now. I’ve got today, Monday and tuesday free and then I am flying back to Manchester on Wednesday. I am hoping to visit Niagra Falls on Tuesday for a few hours.

Quiet Day

Well I’ve had a quiet day today watching some TV, reading my book, time online and some final touches to my planned itinerary for the remainder of my time here in Canada.

This morning saw a nice cool wind with the rain, but yet again the heat and humidity return 🙁

Fort York

Yesterday I visited Fort York in downtown Toronto and had a very enjoyable afternoon looking around the museum exhibits and watching some of the reinactments of British military routines from well over 100 years ago.

Here is the website for the museum:

A common thread in my posts is references to the heat and humidity here in Toronto. Yet again the heat and sun got the best of me and after returning from my one hour return trip on foot from the fort I really did not feel at all well.
