The 8th wonder of the world … and a half.

Niagara falls are described as the 8th natural wonder of the world.

Indeed they are worth the car ride from Toronto: here above the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, with some tourists queuing for the cruise.

Niagara falls downtown is also a wonder  … of its kind.

_DSC2526 _DSC2516-2

Water again: Niagara falls from the Canadian side and Maid of the Mist approaching the huge Horseshoe falls.

Niagara … fallen.

Finally, into the Horseshoe Falls with the Canadian Horn Blower!

Niagara Falls are a majestic natural wonder … with some awkward neighborhoods 😀 Click each picture to enlarge.



The tip of the Western Hemisphere

The tallest freestanding structure of the Western Hemisphere is the Canadian National Tower, built back in 1976.

And the highest floor in the Western hemisphere is its Skypod.

From its 447 m.s.l., enjoy the majestic view on Toronto downtown and lake Ontario.

Wait for the the lights switching on the Gardiner motorway and roof top swimming pools …

… and enjoy the sunset.  Pictures shot with a Nikon 16-35 mm and a 70-200 mm VR II. Click each picture to zoom in.


Toronto: the urban jungle

_DSC2259-2 _DSC1721-2

To explore the jungle of Toronto you will need a guide with a large hat. Otherwise follow somebody big.

They will lead you through the reflecting labyrinths of glass and metal of University avenue …

_DSC1709 _DSC2075

With them you will be not scared by the dark gorges of Bay and Yonge streets …

_DSC1678-5 _DSC1744-3

and through the sunny oasis of Nathan Philips square, you will finally reach the 553 meter high totem. Where to go from here? Click each picture to enlarge



Jim’s land

“Hi Jim, I come to visit your homeland for a while, any suggestion?” “Sure Lorenzo, I send you a full road map from Toronto to Quebec City!”

_DSC3929 _DSC3920

And so it was. More than 2,000 km on the road, discovering the French and English in every citizen of  Canada East coast. And here we start with entering Toronto!



Finally here!


Late also this year? Unbelievable.


No delays there, though …


I will stay here until she finally arrives!


Ahh, finally. Yes … There she is …


Welcome back Summer!


Signs of summer


Summer brings new, undefined ways for reaching the working place…


Go there!


Almost there …


Now what ?

Non-luoghi, aka non-places

Downtown in the weekend turns into a non-luogo (non-place). Depleted of people, neither for housing nor for shopping, these not-places show their Moloc-machines’ nature
