  1. THIS IS TORONTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  2. I used to work for a travel mag for 2.5 years and went to many cities and countries for business including: South Africa’s Cape Town which was heartbreaking in its poverty and beautiful in its spirit, all of Barbados my favourite Caribbean country for personal reasons, Germany villages and cities like Koln along the Rhine River which are picturesque and historic, Venice in Italy which is just as romantic as it looks in the movies.
    Last fall, I took my first European vacation since I was a child and enjoyed Paris, London and Rome over 2 weeks. I travelled by plane, train, subway, streetcar, bus and foot – never by taxi which allowed me to get to know these cities more intimately.

  3. As a lifelong Torontonian, I have my likes and dislikes about the city I love dearly.
    It is relatively safe, it is multicultural with a mix of languages and ethnicities that allow us to experience new foods, festivals and insights into other cultures if we so desire.
    Toronto’s relatively clean, is heaven in the summer with its street parties, and has wonderful neighbourhoods that allow us to connect to people in a large city where we might otherwise feel lost and alone.
    My dislikes include the fact it is expensive, dirtier than it used to be, not as friendly as it should be.
