I can't be certain, but I think this is Niagra Falls.

Oh God yes! I most certainly did, and thanks! You and Isaidso meeting me at the airport was one of the best things about the trip. Thanks for being such gracious hosts. In spite of the train breaking down when you were coming to greet me, after going to the washroom and then the long line at Customs, I hadn't been waiting long at all. It was funny how I thought I had missed you instead of you missing me.

I absolutely loved Toronto! It was far more enjoyable than my last trip to New York or Chicago. One of those reasons was obvious, but beyond that, I really enjoyed the layout of that huge downtown of yours from Bloor to the financial district, so alive and vibrant. I thoroughly enjoyed getting around on the subway. I went back to the airport exactly the way you showed me. That was a lot more convenient and economical than the other transport services from the airport. I definitely would like to come back again and stay longer, especially after so many of your new skyscraper projects come to completion.

Glad you enjoyed your trip to Toronto. I just re-surfaced from Pride festivities. My head is still ringing.

Thanks for making it as enjoyable as it was. That whole part of the city from Bloor to the financial district is just so vibrant.
