Toronto is Canada’s largest city and has a reputation as a leading North American financial and cultural centre. It’s also home to a number of impressive architectural sights, which we caught in a self-guided tour. They included the Allen Lambert Galleria (a six-story Calatrava building which had a pretty confronting photojournalism exhibition inside), the Sharp Centre for Design, and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

We then headed over to the most iconic structure in Toronto - the CN Tower, where we caught the elevator up to 360, the revolving restaurant at the top. There for a very early dinner (about 5pm), we got a great view of the city and the incredibly huge Lake Ontario, as well as delicious fare accompanied by a great Niagaran wine.

Driving in to Toronto, Gavin had gotten excited seeing a billboard advertising a production of Chess, and we’d managed to get some super cheap tickets (they look after their students in Canada). To remain diplomatic, the production was… interesting. Suffice to say, beer during interval certainly aided the second act. In the late evening, we headed out to take some night photos of the Skyline before heading home.
