Oh Canada!: Part 2 >>> TORONTO

Days 4 and 5 of our trip were spent touring around Toronto, which is the most populous city in Canada and one of the most important ones in Ontario.
Toronto is such a beautiful city.. it has so many interesting landmarks and it offers such a great vibe...
While in Toronto, we visited the CN Tower, one of the most iconic spots in the city...We went up to the lookout, which is more than 1,100 ft above ground and enjoyed the beautiful views from the top...


 ..here are some of the amazing views from the top of the CN Tower.. it was amazing to admire the city from up top.. way too cool!


...the observatory has two floors..here we are enjoying the fresh air from the top floor...


..and here's Olivia trying to blend in.. I think she did a great job! ;)


...the next day, we visited a few other interesting places, including museums, parks, government buildings, etc... This picture is of the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), which is one of the coolest buildings I have every seen... (I really love modern architecture)...


..this is the parliament building... another cool building..


...and here's St. Lawrence Market, one of the most famous spots in downtown Toronto, featuring foods from many places in the world.. with over 120 vendors, merchants and artisans... It was such an interesting place, with so many neat things...


...we also visited the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), another one of Toronto's great museums, featuring modern art housed in a wonderful building by famous architect Frank Gehry...what a great place!


...here's a view of the Toronto metro, which is less than impressive.. I found it to be messy and dirty.. but I guess all subway systems are like that...


 ..and a view of some of the modern buildings that are part of the Toronto skyline...it is indeed a very beautiful and interesting city...


It was so great to walk around Toronto and be able to visit all the interesting spots the city has to offer.. It is such a beautiful place and I am sure we will be back at some point!
