Sudbury Saturday Night

And now, a brief interlude from our voluminous collection of travel snaps…

Toronto: the Good Stuff

On Saturday we took a long subway ride downtown to see a play – a matinee at the Lorraine Kimsa Young People’s Theatre – and ran into fantastic music at every turn. Lovely subway buskers, including one fantastic mbira (thumb piano) player, and outside St. Lawrence Market we came across this:

(They are the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, self-billed as “Toronto’s only balkan-klezmer-gypsy-party-punk super-band”.)

Then just inside the market, only a few feet away, a string quartet.

Add to that a great play, yummy lunch and coconut buns, and I am left with a definite warm fuzzy feeling toward the big city.

(p.s. Sorry for the crazy camera moment in the middle of the video, but the Boss started wandering off…)
