Toronto from the top

Toronto… what a fantastic city! It’s the largest city in Canada and it is the fifth most populous city in North America. Toronto is one of the world's most diverse cities, with about 49% of the population born outside Canada. Toronto is also consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities.
I had the opportunity to see the city from  its highest point (550 m tall), the Canadian National tower, CN tower for short, and it was great to see the top of the buildings, the traffic, the streets…
As a tourist, I was invited to buy some souvenirs!! You may be wondering which souvenirs Toronto have, right? I can make you a list:
  • Maple. Maple every­thing: maple syrup to drench your pancakes, waffles, French toasts, or oatmeals, maple can­dies, maple tof­fees and so on. You know, you can make maple syrup by boiling between 20 and 50 liters of xylem sap (from the Maple trees) in order to obtain 1 liter of syrup. 
  • Smoked salmon from Vancouver.
  • Ice wine: a sweet dessert wine produced with frozen grapes.
  • Clothes, decoration, toys and other stuff with wild animals printed. Mooses, bears or beavers... Pick one! 

 Kiss, kiss

PS: Don’t you forget to go to Tim Hortons, known for its coffee and doughnuts, to complete  your Canadian experience!

Check here the photos from Niagara Falls, in case that you missed the post ;)
