Halloween in Toronto – Boo!

Pumpkin lightsWe were exhausted, but hey, Halloween only comes once a year, yet celebrated even less in most countries. We had to take advantage of the festivities. Three blocks from the condo is Church Street. They close off the street for blocks and people go wild. There were dozens and dozens of costumes with tremendous originality involving tons of work to create. I only snapped a few with my phone. It was so crowded I feared someone knocking it out of my hand. I was too tired to even think of bringing my camera. They even have pumpkin lights on the street lamps. How festive is that?

We went to Halloween themed Bistro 666 for a light dinner at 10:30pm local time. The place was jammed. Street festivities continue to 3am.

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI. We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
