Summer 2019-Day 21

Our days in Toronto are almost coming to an end. This meant one more trip to downtown.

Toronto also hosts a historic site: Fort York.

A brief history lesson: a war occurred in 1813 between America and Britain. First nation( indigenous people) and British army fought together. Who won? It ended in no one “winning.”

We got to do two tours which were very informative. The tours talked about in details about the lives of soldiers and officers.

The officers paid to have a luxurious life. They had a whole house with a servant at their service. A wine cellar, parlor, a chef were all the basic amenities enjoyed by the officer- how cool!

Next stop was Eaton Place- a huge mall. We didn’t last much longer there and ended up eating Thai food. Yum!
