FC: Callie's Travelogue of Toronto, Canada |

1: Toronto, Canada is the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is currently the fifth most populous city in North America. In southern Ontario, it is known as the Golden Horseshoe. Its international population makes it an important destination for immigrants to move to Canada. About 49% of the population is born out of Canada. | |

2: People have been living in Toronto since the last Ice Age. In the 18th century, the French built small trading posts. In 1787, the Toronto area was purchased from the Mississaugas. In 1793, a military post was established and the settlement was named York. The town grew and in 1834, it was named the city of Toronto. | History |

8: Toronto has a semi-continental climate, with a warm, humid summer and a cold winter. Toronto's climate is modified by its location on the shores of Lake Ontario. The best time of year to travel to Toronto is in the fall because the climate is brisk but temperate, the skies are sunny, and the parks have tons of color. Bring a light jacket or cardigan when traveling to Toronto in the fall. | | | Weather

About 420,000 people speak Chinese, 195,000 people speak Italian, 114,000 people speak Taglog/Philipino, and 113,000 speak Portuguese. The official currency of Canada is the Canadian Dollar. Toronto is a casual town. If you go to a fancy place, dress a bit nicer. The cuisine of Toronto reflects its size and multicultural diversity. Such as Caribbean, Hungarian, and Chinese. They have a long tradition of beer brewing and are famous for street food. | | Culture |

11: Today is my first day in Toronto, Canada and so far I have loved it. I arrived early in the morning and my first stop was to the CN Tower, it is the tallest free standing building in the Western Hemisphere. After my trip to the CN Tower, everyone recommended a place called Fran's, to try for lunch. I thought is was very good, I got their famous Fish and Chips. For the rest of the day, I just walked around downtown Toronto and admired all the colors Fall had brought. It's time for dinner now and I am going to a place called Nota Bene. I will write more tomorrow. | | | Journal #1

12: It is my second day in Toronto and I am very anxious to get out and go look around. Earlier today, I headed out to the Toronto Zoo. The zoo was amazing, there were hundreds of animals. I have never seen that many animals in my life. For lunch, I went to a restaurant called Biff's Bistro, I had a Chicken Club sandwich. It was the best sandwich I have ever had. After lunch I went to Casa Loma. Casa Loma is a Gothic revival style house and gardens in midtown Toronto, Canada. When I was done touring Casa Loma, it was getting dark so I went to dinner at Mercatto. It is getting late so I will write more tomorrow night. | | | Journal #2

13: Today is my third day in Toronto and it has been great so far. I got brunch at a restaurant called Over Easy. It was great, I had eggs and sausage. Once I was done, I went shopping at the Toronto Eaton Centre, it was huge. Later that day, I went to Fort York. Fort York is a historic site of military fortifications. It was interesting to see the history of Toronto. Now I am off to dinner at a place called Panorama Lounge. Tomorrow is my last day so I will write about my day while I am on the plane heading back home. | | | Journal #3

14: Today was my last day in Toronto and I have had a blast. I woke up early so I could see as much of Toronto as I could. I visited Toronto Islands, it was beautiful and so relaxing. After that, I went to the Grange Historic House. The Grange Historic House was the first home of the Art Museum of Toronto. I am going to miss Toronto, I will definitely come back and visit. I am off to the Toronto Pearson Airport. I have a long flight a head of me. Toronto is on my list of places to come back to. | | en,

15: Kansas city and Toronto, Canada are different but similar in some ways. Toronto has a downtown area just as Kansas city does. Both Kansas city and Toronto have a dollar coin. Like Toronto, Kansas city has historical landmarks. Kansas city has a $1 coin while Toronto has a $1 and $2 coin. Toronto's currency is the Canadian Dollar however Kansas city uses the U.S. dollar. | |

16: Cause and Effect | The effect this journey has had on my life is I have a new appreciation for cultural differences. I enjoyed meeting many people who moved to Canada from different countries and cultures. It was interesting visiting the communities where these people from different cultures settled. It was fascinating to see how immigrants have adapted to the Canadian culture while maintaining their traditions. | |

17: Though the trip is over my memories of Toronto will live forever. I will never forget the different people, food, culture, and lifestyle. Canada was different than I had expected. "To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries." -Aldous Huxley | |
