A Rainy Day in Toronto

Today was a rainy day in Toronto.

Rainy Day, Tim Hortons, Toronto, Canada

I started out my day by walking to Tim Hortons in the rain to get breakfast. I was not going to eat the overpriced hotel breakfast, and I am in Canada. I had to have my breakfast at Tim Hortons.

Fireplace, Westin Prince, Toronto, Rainy Day

Of course since it was a rainy day it would have been nice to just curl up in front of a fireplace for the day instead of teaching a course.

This is the fireplace in the hotel lobby at the Westin Prince. It was tempting, but it was time to check out and finish the course.

You could tell it was a rainy day when going into the break room. I had to fight through the umbrellas to get my morning drink. It is interesting to see open umbrellas drying. This is usually not the case in the US, but I see it around the world.

Fox & Fiddle, Lunch, York Mills, Toronto

It was still raining when we went to lunch. We had our lunch at the Fox & Fiddle. I had some good Butter Chicken for lunch.

Rainy Commute, 401 Toronto, Traffic, Rainy DayIt was then back to the classroom to finish up and then it was off to the 401 and commute traffic. The manager took me to my friends’ house and then he was off to the airport to drop off a couple of students before heading home.

The traffic was not good, but it didn’t drag too much as we had some good conversations in the car as we poked along.

I was remembering the same commute from last October when we had a Colorful Commute.

I then had a nice evening with my friends and enjoyed a nice dinner. Now for some sleep before enjoying a nice vacation day and the weekend before heading home.

Will I see some snow? It is in the forecast.
