If you really want to find out more, buy me a Guinness
I did the Maid of the Mist trip, and was planning to do at least the Journey Behind The Falls, but decided the boat ride and looking from the edge was enough. Spent most of the day wandering around, popping into the odd gift shop to buy a few postcards and souvenirs for the family back home. The weather was fantastic, and with the spray from the falls to keep the edge off the heat, it was very enjoyable day.
Once back in Toronto, I took a walk up to the parliment building to get my pilgramage shots in. It's quite an impressive building, and according to the plaque has quite a controversial history. Next was a long walk down College Street to find Alex's Bar. I had been lead to believe that that was the name of the bar, but on turning up at 580A College Street discovered a place called The Orbit Room. It looked shut anyway, but I guessed Alex's Bar had either shutdown or moved on. Found another local bar serving Guinness so it wasn't a total disappointment. Having got back to the hotel, I checked up to find that I had got the right place, and there was a gig on tonight, but I'd arrived too early! If only I'd gone back after the Guinness. Maybe later in the week.
Tired now after all the walking, and the conference starts tomorrow. Should be good to catch up with a few people. But sleep beckons.
