This is my 500th entry to my photoblog. The site uses at least 4gb a month and is nearly 1gb in size. I dread the day when I move hosts.
On Friday I went for a simple wander. I was trying to decide where to go and I figured I might go upto Bay Street where the famous people can be found. I started my journey at the usual place, Union station.
I stopped at Dundas and got a street car which I thought was going east on Younge but instead it went west and I ended up in a technically dodgy area. I’m sure I saw at least one prostitute outside a church and I found this rather funny sign on a hotel.
Whilst walking back to Dundas, since the street car track was being repaired, I spotted an Esso station. You wouldn’t know whether that was in pounds or dollars. 99.5 cents or 99.5 pence.
I arrived back at Dundas and waited.
I kept waiting.
As did everyone else. It turned out there was some problem and the trains had been stopped.
We all went up top and waited for a free bus.
The bus arrived but it was full so I walked up Bay street. It goes past the Toronto University which is huge! This was part of it.
I finally got to the good part of Bay street and found Boba Fett had his own resturant there.
You can tell it was a posh area because they had a Wellness Clinic. One of the features involved mobile phones :o
Ah yes, the famous nude statue store where you can buy nude statues. Some are unarmed too.
A rather odd statue. This one wasn’t for sale.
This girl was trying to get people to enter a competition to win a Mustang. Mustangs are really common there and a nice sight.
A standard issue crossing sign.
Apparently there is a lot of taxi cab voilence in Toronto at the moment.
I don’t know what this was about but it was quite nice to look at.
I saw quite a few bikes like this with flowers in. Its a nice sight to see.
This guy was really odd and had quite a bit to say about his situation.
Kinda odd graffitti in the university area.
My journey ended in Chinatown where this guy was having fun with his grandson I think.
For tea we went to Hooters. Everyone should go once. Its a really hyped up place and yet it was rather disapointing. The women don’t really smile. Still, it was an experience.
