I've Been Everywhere

So on a whim Mrs Wasp Jerky and I have decided to go to Niagra Falls and Toronto this summer. Has anyone been either of those places? What should we do to occupy ourselves? Inquiring minds want to know...

i went on a whirlwind during my little traveling vacation last august.

i didn't get a chance to even see Niagara being that i got really turned around on their intersta... interprovin... whatever. i got lost like eight times getting out of there. and so i didn't get to the border until midnight and couldn't see a thing. and i apparently entered toronto illegally, being on some sort of i-pass expressway with no way out before i realized that i wasn't supposed to be there.

luckily, i was driving a rental. (see if they can catch me. heck,
THEY were the duplicitous ones.)

toronto itself is very rich in multiculturalism. i saw white punk-kids doing the same stuff that i'm used to in chicago (window washing at intersections and otherwise begging) that i've only seen african-american men do here.

i've heard that the best place for chicago-area chinese to go for food is toronto. and it's about the size of chicago, so i'm sure there's quite a bit of stuff to do there.

not sure if i was of any help to the jerkies.

I haven't spent all that much time in the T-Dot but Yonge street is a pretty fun place to hang out. Going on the Maid of the Mist at Niagara is really cool and fun, but avoid all the schlocky touristy junk that proliferates around the area.

(Montreal is the uber-hip Canadian city, now, anyway.)

dude i want to go to Toronto too. Can i go??? in a separate car of course cuz y'all will be smooching and crap (gross). No really, i want to go to Toronto like hard core man! Not so much Niagara. . . that makes me nervous.

Hmmm. That sounds suspiciously like something I'd do, jasdye. Luckily my wife will be there. I could get lost in our apartment complex. I think I read somewhere else that Toronto has quite the China Town (although we've somehow managed to avoid ever going to Chicago's version in nearly three years of living here). Anyways, we'll check it out.

Thanks for the ideas, jenny. Maybe we'll hit Montreal next time.

We're flying, bonita. Guess we'll have to join the mile high club instead.
