Wandering around Toronto

Uncategorized 13 Jun 06

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.

CRW_0632-01.jpg

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

CRW_0659-01.jpg

Ah yes, the famous nude statue store where you can buy nude statues. Some are unarmed too.

CRW_0660-01.jpg

A rather odd statue. This one wasn’t for sale.

CRW_0670-01.jpg

This girl was trying to get people to enter a competition to win a Mustang. Mustangs are really common there and a nice sight.

CRW_0671-01.jpg

A standard issue crossing sign.

CRW_0673-01.jpg

Apparently there is a lot of taxi cab voilence in Toronto at the moment.

CRW_0674-01.jpg

I don’t know what this was about but it was quite nice to look at.

CRW_0676-01.jpg

I saw quite a few bikes like this with flowers in. Its a nice sight to see.

CRW_0678-01.jpg

This guy was really odd and had quite a bit to say about his situation.

CRW_0679-01.jpg

Kinda odd graffitti in the university area.

CRW_0682-01.jpg

My journey ended in Chinatown where this guy was having fun with his grandson I think.

CRW_0684-01.jpg

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.
