Toronto Day 2

Image

Today had a very exciting start with a tour of Complections College of Makeup Art & Design, which pretty much made up my mind. The tour was super informative, answered all of my questions and all around just made me super excited at the idea of taking classes here!

Afterwards we walked down to the St. Lawrence Market, in 1803 Lieutenant Governor Peter Hunter created a Saturday farmers market. To this day there is still a farmers market every Saturday and a permanent market place very much like the Forks Market in Winnipeg with specialty stores selling goods ranging from freshly roasted coffee beans, cheese, hand made jewelery, to caviar, meat and fish.

Later we had lunch at a nearby restaurant ‘Jack Astors’ which was really delicious. Next, we moved on to the ‘Distillery District’ in east down town Toronto. It contains numerous cafés, restaurants, and shops housed within heritage buildings of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery, and comprises more than 40 heritage buildings, and is the largest collection of Victorian era industrial architecture in North America. The Gooderham and Worts Distillery was founded in 1832, by the late 1860s it was the largest distillery in the world. It produced whiskey mostly for export on the world market.

After stopping at a cafe for ice lattes we headed home to regain energy and have an early dinner.

For our evening entertainment we went to the free hours at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Every Wednesday from 6:00-8:30pm entrance to the art gallery is completely free, unless you want to visit the special exhibits then there is a charge. We saw some pretty interesting pieces, some pretty weird pieces…

Though we haven’t visited it yet, we have seen the CN tower in the skyline several times, tomorrow is the big day for that though.
