Well after the endless roadside view of trees, trees and more trees we arrived in the concrete jungle of Toronto. [Don't get me wrong, you know I love trees, however a change in scenery is always welcome]. Toronto is big, big and bigger than you can imagine. Our necks are cricked from gazing up to the many sky-scrapers here!
Rob has been persuaded to go up the CN Tower at the weekend(c.553metres high = the highest free-standing structure in the world} - he's not overly keen, but it has to be done - the glass floor is of particular concern, somehow the brain has trouble over-riding the fact that you can see the ground below, it's not right but hey!
I am in Vegan Food heaven - have found a place - Vegetarian Haven where I can eat everything on the menu, woohoo!!! Including the best carrot cake in the world!!!
It is the Toronto Film Fest this week so will be in film heaven.
We are staying at the Canadiana Backpackers - very relaxed and friendly in the heart of the entertainment district.
Well that's all for now folks - time to log off free internet access.
Will tell you about Niagra soon and our Beaver Fever trip!!!.....
Also 37 hours on train to look forward to.
See ya!

Good to hear how it's going. Great photos. Good luck with train journey, hope bums don't get too numb.
Look forward to next travelogue. Alice and Daniel back at school now, Daniel loving it so far, first GCSE year, he is doing catering, hurrah, he tells me his teach is going to eat all the food they cook though. Apparently he is quite a small person - soon to be very large I think. Alice working v hard for GCSEs.
Love Mike Sara Alice & Daniel.

Chill out guys
Hi y'all (how Canadian did that sound?) Really good to hear you're doing well. Rob looks mucho relaxo! And I think you need to avoid any job involving massage oils (unless, perchance, you would be massaging a mountie?!?) I could make concessions for that Em!!

Much luv, Jeanius.
