Thanks Toronto for a pretty stellar 2 months. I will miss:
- The unusual flavors: i.e. ketchup chips and the obsession with anything pickle flavored
- The need to plaster the Canadian flag all over anything and everything.
- Being considered an exotic foreigner from New York City
- Being accustomed to carrying around all of my purchases as a result of my stubbornness toward paying 5 cents for each bag.
- The dive bar we FINALLY found on our last weekend here. It was only one night, but it will be missed.
- Milk in bag form.
- The beautiful apartment, housekeeper, perfect location and all around baller status that comes with this.
- People watching on Queen St. and Kensington Ave.
- Thrift and vintage stores as far as the eye can see.
- Waking up every morning to a beautiful sky-line filled with people in their cubicles and feeling damn lucky I’m not them.
- “S(ore)y, Eh?, AL-to, etc.” and the half Minnesota accent that is Canadian speech.
- Pretty, colorful, and sometimes too confusing monetary system.
- That one week when we had BEAUTIFUL weather in the 70s and I wore shorts and forgot for a second that it’s (almost) always freezing here.
- The coffee…so. much. coffee.
- Tim Horton’s, Fresh, Soup Nutsy, Second Cup and other Canadian food chain establishments
- In fact, London Fog Tea Latte from Second Cup…I may miss you most of all.
All in all Toronto has been a pretty cool place to live, if only for a couple months. But now it’s time for the next (much warmer) leg of the adventure.
