Pictures from Toronto

I think we all need a break from all the medical talk.

Here are some pics from our travels to Toronto and what we have been up to the past two weeks. It's still a little hard to believe we've been living here for almost two weeks.

Off we go! We literally had no more room in the car.
Isaiah said 'you're not taking one of those ridiculous foot travel pics are you?'.Yes I was.
What a fabulous bridge.
Who needs a GPS when you have an actual map? 
Quebec! Good-bye Maritimes :(
Ontario! (If only it was really that fast of a transition in real life)
Gah Toronto traffic!!
 Ok, so maybe not as much traffic as one would think. 
View from the apartment to the left, can you find the CN tower?

View to the right (obviously on a different day).
We went to the AGO for their free night, I didn't take any pictures of the art so here is a picture of a postcard of the art. Pretty much the same thing.
There was an all-night art fest last Friday night. There was a lot of bike-themed art and one sock-themed art. It was a giant canopy of pairs of socks.

Ai Weiwei built a giant sculpture of bikes for the night.
Last Wed night we went to the Ai Weiwei exhibit at the AGO. This backpack snake represents the each of the children who died in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. The entire exhibit was very moving and depressing.
More Ai Weiwei (the quote not the people)
Yesterday we went to the Royal Ontario Museum and looked at rocks. You would think dating a geologist, I would have more shinny stones like this one but that doesn't seem to be the case. Apparently they don't get to keep the minerals.
