Yonge and Bloor Toronto
Toronto

Summer daytime scene at the very famous intersection of Yonge and Bloor Street in Toronto.

Yonge Street is one of the longest developed straight single stretches of street on planet Earth reaching over 1800 km in length.

This spot is about 3.5km into the ~1800km stretch.   To the direct east on Bloor is the route to Danforth Avenue and Greek-town and then Scarborough.

To the direct west immediately is self-proclaimed posh Yorkville filled with overpriced boutique stores and endless stories of Hollywood celebrity sightings at they attend the Toronto International Film Festival or live locally to film an American movie that ironically serves to avoid paying taxes in America altogether.

America is a funny place because it's a nation that is so proud of it's heritage and higher standard of living; they love to criticize conditions in the rest of the world... but they do everything humanly possible to actually avoid re-investing in their own country or paying the taxes that keeps it running in the first place.

That's why so many American corporations have their headquarters everywhere else except America.

What does that have to do with this little 360 panorama?   Everything.  So shut up.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
