The lonely 7 hour drive....

I picked a perfect day to travel as the weather was gorgeous and made for a pretty uneventful trip. The bridges you have to drive on as you are approaching Canada are quite scary and for some reason I felt compelled to take a picture as I was driving (not a smart idea, I understand that).

Bruno: You asked the difference between upstate NY and Toronto. Basically everything. For such a large city, Toronto is insanely clean and the people are genuinely nicer. I can guarantee when people walk around Albany, the last thing they think about is how clean the area is. It is a different atmosphere in general, but I guess it all really depends on
where you are in NY and where you are in Toronto. I will say this though, I feel 10X more safer going on a subway alone than one in NYC.

I guess the Bills are coming to Toronto in December. They had stuff all over the stadium and during game time in which they were promoting the game and the "newly reduced prices." I guess the tickets aren't selling that fast. But they do have all of 6 months or so left to sell....They did have cheerleaders for the Bills show up during the game in their skimpy little outfits so they have possibly gained an extra fan or two from that. Plus, they also had players from the Bills at the Jays game on Thursday and they kept showing them on the outfield screen.

Tried to tell my stupid cousin who is actually an MD, that Canada is so great, she doesn't get it. It's so civilized up there, you definitely feel like you are in a different world, LET ALONE COUNTRY! I have a good friend that lives in Buffalo and we talk about how Toronto makes Buffalo look like Berlin after World War 2! Don't feel so bad, we have the Bronx down here(what you call Downstate NY I guess), where the Yankees play. Trust me, that Yankee Stadium area is an oasis BUT the rest of the Bronx???!!! Let's just say it looks like a war zone! NYC is safer these days, so I feel safe in the city and in the subway, but I understand what you are getting at. Christina, funny that you mentioned taking photos while driving...but hey, safety comes first BUT you have these wonderful pictures to post anyway!
