Oh, Canada

Work have sent me to Toronto for a week to do some set-up at a client. This is my first time in Canada. I was lucky enough to get upgraded to business class on the flight over. That's my first upgrade after many flights. For me it meant better food and space to stretch my legs. It would be nice for the night flight going back as I might actually be able to sleep on the lie-flat seats.

I have to say that Canada looks a lot like anywhere USA at first glance. That's in terms of the roads, the traffic and the general building style. There's slight differences in the flags being flown, the use of French on some signs and the use of metric units. I had a brief walk around downtown Toronto. I craned my head back to look at the mighty CN tower and admired the massive Skydome baseball stadium. I've not had a chance to check out the shopping yet.

What's suprising is the sheer heat. It's 32C here and humid. They are even predicting smog. But then it gets scarily cold with masses of snow in winter. I'm often quite glad of the mild weather extremes at home.
