27th February 2008: Toronto

The theme of this holiday seemed to be "if you thought it was cold yesterday well think again ..."

So after thinking Niagara falls was cold yesterday it turns out itnwasn't compared to today, especially tonight .. more on that later. Since the forecast for today was cold but clear I thought CN Tower was a good plan so off we went.

CN Tower  This is where it started to go a bit awry.   The pod unfortunately was mostly glass which is Jo's slightly odd phobia, not heights but not having filled in barriers when high up. So this meant she couldn't look much - so any dodgy pics are her just pointing the camera and hoping for the best ;) CN Tower CN Tower CN Tower

CN Tower  The walk back to the hotel was a bit of a shocker as, with the wind chill, it was -22! I have honestly never been so cold - was painful and I have a fur coat! Toronto views  At night.  No many photos as it hurt to take off my gloves, even for a few seconds Views of Younge-Dundas Square  From my hotel Views of Younge-Dundas Square
