|This second day we'll be staying in Toronto.
There's enough to see in this city with its 4.3 million inhabitants.
We start with a visit to the CN
Tower, with it's 553 m high the highest free-standing tower in
the world. After that visit we drive around downtown Toronto and see
the shopping areas, the business district and the many restaurants.
At the same time we were standing upon the CN Tower, the
terrorist attack on New York and Washington happened. Because of
that the tower was closed behind our backs. Not only the tower, but
all shops, large offices and tourist attractions closed as well.
We decided to take the ferry to the Toronto
Islands, a collection of recreational islands, a fifteen minute
trip. Here you can enjoy the quietness (not in the summer), the
nature, and have a walk, take a bicycle tour or just enjoy the view
of the skyline of Toronto.
