so! let’s look at thursday in toronto. i landed early in the morning after the short flight over from new york (like 1,5 h).
after getting a big breakfast at a little diner, i walked to drop off my bags. hello drizzly dowtown.
my first mission was the shoe museum!
apparently, they have about 13.000 artifacts. the first exhibition started way back several thousands of years. these particular ones are maybe not THAT old, but you know, still.
and some more contemporary ones, like these (actual) moonboots.
one exhibition was on men in heels, where these extravagant platforms that elton john had worn stood!
hello from canada!
another cool exhibition was on outerwear in the areas around the polar circle. a parka made from seal intestines or boots from fish skin, anyone?
this last exhibition was on painful or hurtful fashion (like dresses filled with asbestus, corsets, extremely narrow shoes, and stuff like that). ouch.
thank you, shoe museum! time to move on.
look at this little baby! it’s so funny how different squirrels look in different areas. that there are black ones in canada, the huge fat grey new york ones, or the tiny ginger ones in sweden.
and here i was thinking toronto would be just clean high-rises. oh how wrong i was.
it was still gray and a little rainy in the afternoon, but it was ok cause toronto was still cute!
with drizzle, low brick houses and graffiti, it felt more like london than north america?? totally different from what i expected!!
i had heard a lot of good about the little area kensington market, so that’s where i went.
the first place i was met by was the toronto popcorn company! a tiny store with like a million popcorn flavors.
and then i browsed food and vintage clothing for a while (bought some stuff i’ll show you later) before returning to my temporary bed to chill for a bit.
in the evening, i decided to take a walk towards financial.
and passed by the windows at saks fifth avenue! so prettyyyyyyyy
hello city hall!
and after a whole day of walking, i decided to reward myself with pizza. i went to this hidden place. libretto!
and ordered this beauty! with (brace yourselves): roasted cremini mushrooms, gorgonzola, crème fraîche, asiago, pecorino, roasted garlic, brown butter, thyme, and lemon. plus a glass of cab. YUMMMMMMMM. slept so good after this. thanks for this first day, t!
första dagen i toronto! gick på skomuseum, vandrade runt i gulliga kensington market och käkade en fantastisk pizza. så gullig stad! hade liksom förväntat mig sterila höghus bara, men det var mer litet och gulligt, men ändå lite rufft, som london typ. mys!
