Lightsaber battle

I missed this one… about 2,000 people got together on Bloor street, in front of the ROM’s Crystal, to do battle with fluorescent cardboard tubes posing as lightsabers. Apparently it was completely crazy but everybody seems to have had a great time. You can see lots of pictures here. No, I wasn’t there. Unfortunately! I would have loved to have taken some pictures of this fun event:

Winter is here…

Maybe that’s why I felt so wistful about Barcelona earlier this week. It might be the approaching winter. Yesterday I felt my face burn from the cold for the first time this season – a feeling we never really had in Barcelona – and this morning we woke up to barely 1 C. Soon we will be below zero… Can’t wait for the snow!

Here’s one of my Fall pictures:
