The weather outside, however, was much cooler, 8 degrees and raining on Friday. I walked from Mark's house in Etobicoke to the nearby subway, and was surprised at the plentiful spring blossoms on display.
The subway is efficient and convenient, and reasonably priced, especially for me because I never did figure out where to deposit the token!
I then transferred to a tram, which arrived promptly.
I disembarked in Kensington, and the rain enhanced the colors of the character buildings.
Next, I strolled through Graffiti Alley, reminiscent of the murals I saw in Bogota.
As I said, the gala had an all-star cast, including Kim Coates of "Sons of Anarchy" fame.

|Looking down, way down!|
