'The Archer' at City Hall
Sit or stand on/in/around 'The Archer' sculpture in front of City Hall which was created by one of my favorite sculptors; Henry Moore. I dig art you can actually touch, absorb; fry an egg on in the hot summer sun. Try it-you'll like it. :o)

Chinatown behind main streets
We walked around some residential areas in Chinatown and noticed how poorly handled houses and apartments were. The houses didn’t see paint work for a long time; front yards had numerous piles of garbage, very dirty windows. Windows of apartments were stashed with clothes, boxes, blankets, all kind of staff that at first we even didn’t believe they were residential. Back side of restaurants was even in the worse condition: puddle of some colorful stinky liquids, rotten food on the road. After watching this we quickly retreated ourselves to the main streets trying to forget what we saw and not to eat in restaurants.
Yonge Street - random shot, proof of the extent of multiculturalism in Toronto (it's on my things I like about Toronto list)
Also, a shot that gave me the idea, later on, of putting out a CN Tower photography book for the Contacts yearly expo. Torontonians will LOVE MEEE Apr, 2006 (still)
Caribana/Taste of the Danforth
Toronto is one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world. If you are looking to experience some of what Toronto has to offer, I suggest planning a trip for early August.
The first weekend in August plays host to Caribana, one of the largest Parades in North America. This festival was originally based on the Trinidad Carnival, but now includes the music, dance, food and costumes of Jamaica, Guyana, the Bahamas, Brazil and other cultures represented in Toronto.
The weekend after, August 11-13, 2006, is "Taste of the Danforth" on Danforth Street. This festival celebrates Hellenic cuisine and Hellenic culture. You will be able to sample all the different ‘tastes’ of authentic ethnic cuisine that GreekTown has to offer. The best part is that all 'tastes' costs between $1-$5! Whether Greek, Thai, Cuban, Indian, or pub fare is what you crave, there is something for everyone at the Taste of the Danforth. My suggestion is to come with an empty stomach and let the scents of the dolmades, spanakopita (spinach pie), and souvlaki quide you! This event is not to be missed!!
