I had a great weekend.
Saturday night I met FH man and some other members of the crew at Circa. It used to be called Lucid. It's on John Street, 4 floors, with 9 bars and a capacity of 3,000. It was quite a scene. Each space has its own DJ playing different genres of music. At first we were upstairs then went down to a VIP room to hang out. The music was fantastic. I danced with a few of my co-workers and had so much fun. There was a bouncer who was a little too touchy feely but he was nice. He introduced me to one of his co-workers, a young college student. His parents were from Senegal and the Congo but he grew up in Italy and spoke 5 languages. We talked for a while and he was so sweet to not laugh at my crazy Italian/English conversation. Around 2:30 (after a few drinks) I was wiped out and walked with FH man. He said he wanted to come to the falls with me but he had to pack up his apartment. He is going to be traveling in the Middle East after the movie wraps.
The Falls are incredible. If you are in Toronto, it's well worth drive but get there early. The crowds are insane. The area around the Falls is pretty tacky. Lots of wax museums. I drove to a cute town called Niagara on the Lake for lunch. I ate at Shaw's wine bar, not cheap (my burger was $20 and all I had was a glass of water with it) but the food was good.
This morning as I drove on the Don Valley Parkway on my way to set, I remembered I'm leaving a week from today. Some tears where shed. :(
A shot of the Horseshoe Falls which are on the Canadian side. The Amerian Falls are more narrow.
Uhmm, that is a lot of water
I declined to take this boat ride. I can't swim.
Look how high the mist rises. At first I was bummed that it was so cloudy but I now I think the photos look interesting in this light.
Standing on the edge. The sound of the water is deafening.
I wondered what happed to Taylor "Tell It To My Heart' Dayne.
