How nice. No wonder i enjoyed it. I even took video of it :)

When I went to Caribbean events it was of course buy this buy that. But the above event was completely non-commercial in nature which I liked. This is the best kind of event. The others should follow them as example because ones like Caribana and taste of the danforth are all about money money money! The issue I have is I went dressed up in a traditional outfit to taste of the danforth and the money-minded selfish business man told me I had to remove it or pay thousands to be allowed to wear it there. It was interesting going to an event today with such a cultural difference right at city hall in Toronto, Canada! and where people could be totally open about their culture. I will show this to my friends in Peru when I get there :)

By the time I got there, the sun felt hot and I had to remove layers. I hate having to remove and put back on layers because when the sun comes I'm hot when it goes I'm freezing :| I hate that!

But at city hall, the Sikh party was pretty sick lol they were even giving out free Indian food and fruits at different stations. This was the best event I attended yet city hall because they were actually giving back to the community and distributing free lunches rather than charging money and making profits.

Then I continued walking all the way up to St Clair station. The conditions were perfect for this 4 hours of walking!

I won't be home much the next couple of days since I've to entertain some visitors, that's why I'm saying it today. Have a bon voyage as well. Too bad there's no member that wants to take over your thankless job here, lol!

I must have been toughened up by this past brutal winter coz I'm enjoying even this cool spring.

thanks. Well, if the rain and depressing conditions get to you (which I'm sure you will cuz the outlook looks pretty bad lol) then feel free to head down to Lima in the sun and you will be openly welcomed by the people there. They are very welcoming to people coming from places like Canada :)

OP, you have just stumbled upon one of the most beautiful religion in the world. The main temple is the Golden Temple in India where everyone help out cooking free meals INCLUDING the rich n the powerful..beautiful !! And there is NO CLASS NOR CASTE. The rich mingle with the poor alike. Enough said, huh?

I too have taken up walking around me hood though not as extensively as you.

Not bad this morning, it should be warmer later on today right? Yesterday was gorgeous, and I finally got to wear my sandals lol. Perfect weather for doing work on the car too.

Looking forward to tomorrow's rain to test out the new all seasons + rain guards.
Proud to be an Indian.

Today will be exactly the same as yesterday, or even better due to even MOAR SUN. Feels nice out today already.
