25th February 2008: Toronto

Besides the 4 hour delay (did get a free sausage and chips out of it so there was a silver lining ;) in keeping with my 'first hour' theory this trip I got a bit of a grilling from customs - trying to be polite when you really just want to say "no offence but i don't want to live here ... I like Glasgow" Didn't help that the 2nd customs person (yes 2nd!) told me my hotel wasn't good! Anyway once through that I headed off to said hotel which as it turns out is actually, IMHO, very nice. Especially when the taxi driver told me downtown hotels are normally about $200 a night - our deal was $80 per night, was central AND we got top floor so nice views :)
