After such a long delay, I finally visited Toronto’s Distillery District. What a chic little area! It was very compact but full of style and personality, and I’ll definitely come back here with friends for a drink one day. There is a huge “LOVE” fence with padlocks scattered all over – first time I’ve seen one of these NOT on a bridge. It was probably installed recently as not many locks have been placed.

“Doors Open Toronto” this weekend meant that many historic and cultural buildings in Toronto open their doors to the public. This is the Great Library in Osgoode Hall, home of the Law Society of Upper Canada. The whole space feels so luxurious, so solemn, and so magical, almost like a small version of the Hogwarts library.

The financial district of Toronto always gives me a smothering feeling. You’re surrounding by tall buildings on all sides and the sky is not to be seen unless you tilt your head at a > 45-degree angle. Yet, somehow the CN Tower, a bit farther away, found a way to be noticed at the corner of Bay and King, squeezed between two buildings conveniently. Hiyo!

The appearance of Christmas lights signifies the arrival of the holiday season. This year, Bordeaux finally did something different to the Christmas scene than what it has done for the past three years. The red and yellow lines have been replaced by floating blue circles. Cours de L’Intendance looks snazzy, I love it 😉
