corner view: souvenir

Last week i joined corner view courtesy of spain daily and this is my first take at it.
My favorite souvenir from Toronto would be the congestion at Kensington market, where cars fight the narrowness of the streets and pedestrians mock at the drivers. A sort of free will prevails amongst the people, who cross the streets as they like, sing on the streets and entertain passerbys. where you can enjoy the best burritos in the world!



In its proximity is China Town, my all time favorite, where you can find anything and everything under the sky. Where the shops pour out onto the sidewalks, where the smell of fish pervades the atmosphere and the whole street is like eye candy.

and high fashion casually walks by...


Yes, this for me is a typical souvenir of Toronto. You can find more corner views from around the world and their souvenirs at spain daily.

Toronto is a fantastic city. We were there about 6 years ago. Infact, my husband was just offered a job there, but I don't do cold weather anymore at least not with 3 small children. Too many layers.
