Most people think Sudbury is an awful (weather and population wise) place, but it's actually one of the most beautiful places I have seen. I was standing outside the airport, and it was the definition of utter and complete peace and silence. The people are also amazingly nice!

This is probably one of the greatest things I've ever seen. This is up there with the Mona Lisa and David... This, is the GUM WALL OF SEATTLE! No idea who started it or why, but it's full of gum. It's probably the most amazing thing I have ever seen (that isn't known about)!

Today, Spring begins in the Northern hemisphere. The Spring Equinox was at 5:07pm GMT. This moment has been celebrated by Zoroastrians for 5000 years. Zoroastrians are largely centred in the country that is now known as Iran. Because of this very special day I have posted a number of photos from my recent visit to the country.
Also, if you have some time I would ask you to watch THIS VIDEO... it may change your preception of Iran forever. It's short, I promise.

If you are interested on this topic I also suggest reading Open Democracy's recent article.
I hope one day the people who have committed these horrendous acts will be punished; I also hope that we never forget about those who gave their lives for our freedom.

I'm hoping to continue with this, I'll keep bringing you pictures of my favourite shops, restaurants and bars in Toronto every now and then.
SEGOVIA is a Spanish restaurant, it has amazing food and atmosphere. It's also tucked away in a tiny ally, one block away from a major intersection (Yonge and Wellesley). If you come to Toronto, I hope you'll have a chance to go there.

At first it was mainly the poster for The Wind that Shakes the Barley*. However, if you look closer you will also see a number of Pink Floyd, Siddhartha, Salvador Dali and Radiohead posters.
*Speaking of this film, I saw it at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and it was pretty amazing. Ken Loach is one of my favourite directors, and even though this is not his best film, it is definitely worthwhile.
This is Davisville Station on the Toronto Subways system. There are not a lot of outdoor stations, and this is a VERY good thing, as it gets as low as -40 degrees Celsius in the winter.
However, today, the first double digit temperature day of the year (13 degrees), I bet these people were enjoying themselves quite a bit.

This is Queen's Park (Site of the Parliament of Ontario).
The street in front of it is probably the most dangerous street to jaywalk on. Even though it's not a main street, cars often swerve purposely to try to hit you. Perhaps they're just angry at their Members of Parliament.
So… I decided to start one.
Usually people who live in a particular city stop looking at their surrounding… They don’t go to visit exhibits or historical sites.
I’m hoping that this blog will be a good incentive for me to go and discover Toronto (Perhaps along the way I can inspire some other Torontonians or even tourists to do the same).
