Since I was so busy during my Canada trip itself, I didn't have time to blog about it. I'm going to be doing so retroactively over the next week.
My first stop on my trip was Toronto. I stayed in a hotel around the Ed Mirvish theater, where I saw the musical "Flashdance." I later saw the play "The Last Confession," and will write up reviews of both later. Besides seeing those two shows I did some general sight-seeing, and tried out a couple microbrews: 3 Brewers and Mill Street Brew Pub.
I had been to Toronto once before, back in 1997 on a college trip to see "Phantom of the Opera." I was impressed with the city back then, although, I hadn't seen too much of the city other then the area around the Rogers Center. When I first arrived and was walking in the area around my hotel, I wondered what happened to the city as it was not nearly as nice as I remembered it. I found out the next day the areas of the city I had seen before were just as nice and clean as I remembered.
