Just a Gwai Lo
I attended a Hamilton Honey Badgers game.
Having someone to speak with and continuously practicing writing is essential in learning a language.
Toronto is opening up even further.
I spent the afternoon on Toronto Islands.
I love art you can touch or site on or walk inside, and did so with all of the art exhibits at Spring Stations this year.
Toronto feels like a city again.
I celebrate Towel Day every May 25th as an homage to my favourite author, Douglas Adams.
I got my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
I visited the bridge over the course of its construction and today, its opening day.
A month and a year of staying at home as the weather warms.
12 degrees Celsius and sunny during “Spring” in Toronto was the perfect weather to do a tour from the book Toronto Architecture: A City Guide by Patricia McHugh and Alex Bozikovic. Ontario lifted its "strict stay-at-home order" last month, so I no longer felt guilty about wanting to visit the neighbourhood adjacent to mine.
After 12 full months of working from home during a global respiratory pandemic, I'm not sure I learned a lot.
Things are going about as well as one could hope while stuck at home.
This is the new year, and we are still "locked down" (if you want to call it that).
Over the course of a month, I visited the University of Toronto to take an architectural tour.
“‘Tis a fine shutdown, but sure ‘tis no lockdown, English.”
I name my computing devices after minor characters in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.
Faced with the need to get some sunshine and exercise the day before it was expected to rain in Toronto, I took a walking architectural tour of University Avenue.
This is the end of the beginning.
In which I list the repairs I've made to Just a Gwai Lo in preparation for a big upgrade.
