It is a long weekend here in Canada. And in Toronto - Caribana weekend. Toronto's Carnival and celebration of Caribbean culture. S and I decided to watch the parade. It is in an awkward spot to get to by public transit and parking would be impossible so we came up with this solution - put the bikes in the car - drive part way and cycle the rest. That worked out really well. It was the slowest moving parade I've ever seen - not sure why - the parade got stuck in one spot and didn't move for an hour. So rather than wait for the parade to pass us, we walked the parade - from beginning to end. It seemed the best way to see it. It was fun, colourful - so much fun to hear the music and experience the high spirits of the day.
