Canada Day 3

Canada Day 3

Canada Day 3 | AGO

Today is the day that I pick up my Co-Worker. Yay, no longer “alone” here. I decided that rather than drive up there and then drive back, I’d go to Toronto and just goof off. Went to theĀ Art Gallery of Ontario, it was interesting. The basement had model ships. The remaining floors had what you’d expect from an art gallery. I was excited about the photography wing, but it was all photos from Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Still, the museum was interesting. Then it was time to pick Robert up from the airport.

 

What I learned today:

  • Toronto Airport has 2 arrival areas, good to know.
  • Baseball a big thing? I went downtown originally to see the aquarium and ran into a Toronto Blue Jays game that was jamming up the city. Apparently it’s not just hockey. I suppose the Rockies do the same thing.

Canada Day 2 | The Museum

Today I decided to go and visit a museum. There are of course a lot to choose from, but I decided on one simply called “The Museum“. Seemed like quite the claim. Indeed it was a museum. It was enjoyable, though it really didn’t have a focus. Level 1 and 2 were geared toward children and featured interactive exhibits such as plasma balls and such. Level 3 had dinosaurs. Level 4 had an art exhibit. Of particular interest was a movie that was playing on loop about two radio DJs whose station was shutting down, so they asked the audience to bring in music for them to play. This shady guy shows up and gives them a record that anyone who hears it becomes violent and almost zombie like. I admit was was interesting.

 

What I learned today:

  • “new” signs – I’ve seen these around the road. They indicate where new street lights and such have been put in. Interesting to say the least
