A walk around the city

Spadina St

It was very cosmopolitan at breakfast today, there were people from Germany, Switzerland, France and Britain.  We decided to spend today exploring the city on foot.  Our host gave us a good route to see the best bits.  We found the university area which reminded us very much of Oxford or Cambridge - very English!  Next on the route was Spadina Street, taking in China Town.  This was an amazing place, bustling streets with lots of shops and stalls piled high with exotic looking fruits.

Just one block away from China Town was Kensigton Market, which reminded us both of Camden in London.  It was a great place to hang out, very funky, with an eclectic mix of shops and stalls, and small interesting cafes..... Cuban, Mexican, Portugese and more.

We then walked down to Union Station, where we managed to spen nearly a months budget on two rail passes that will take us up to Monteal and back, and all the way to Vancouver.  After the shock of spending so much money, we walked down to the waterfront to recover.  We soaked up the atmosphere at a quayside bar where we had some food and a couple of beers.  After this we headed back through the city back to the B&B where we stayed for the night.
