Snippets of Toronto goodness

Toronto- a few highlights from the vibrantly cultural hub of Ontario
bew @ somewherethere
Improv gig featuring Belfast-based bew and Toronto-based Octopus. Although the artists only met on the night, the mix of sounds was very natural. A sonic conversation, all voices were heard. Beautiful music and very warm atmosphere.

ROM (Royal Ontario Museum)
Neither the building nor the art pieces could possibly disappoint. Objects from around the world. Amazing collection of beetles.  Traditional costumes, weapons, musical instruments and other objects from various continents. Fauna and flora.. plenty more.

and new...

Kensington Market
bric à brac, vintage, junk, fruit & veg, reggae, bars, 'Paris Hilton' incense sticks (phew), colours, smells, random bits and pieces...
awesome place to roam the streets...   sit down and make camp the time of a couple of cool pitchers...              
or take the time to smell the patchouli oils burning in and outside the numerous hippie shops

Niagara Falls
from ghost town ...            to wonder of the world

and many more... Tony Allen and his band playing for free in a park, by far the best sushi I've ever tasted, street festivals, the Bata Shoe Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario, kind and welcoming strangers...
and more importantly, wonderful friends and hosts! Thanks Gerald & Katie.

Next stop of our holiday: Montreal.
