Torontage

Another busy conference - this time with a start at 8.30 on a Sunday morning...

Currently I'm sat in the conference press room for a brief lunch before exploring the tradeshow, and then it's off to more meetings, and a dinner with the UK Microsoft contingent. Unfortunately all this means that we'll probably be unable to meet up with rfmcdpei - sorry!

Toronto is a lovely city - at least after a brief encounter. We managed a trip out to the Toronto Islands as a means of dealing with jet-lag, and a dose of book-shoppery yesterday. Bakka, a specialist SF book store was a lucky find. I'd forgotten that Cory had recommended it a while back...

Dinner last night was up the top of the CN Tower. Good fun, good food (if buffet style), and good company. Photos of the portable Mini Goth Course will follow - along with other Toronto images...

FYI: best cheap place to eat in Toronto is a tiny restaurant called Country Style on Bloor west of Dundas (on North side of street -- it's hard to spot because its sign is understated). Hungarian food: giant Wiener Schnitzel with knopfle (aka tiny dumplings) and superb apple strudel.

Also good: Chinatown -- just East of Dundas a few blocks south of Bloor.
