Early morning trip. Investigating the houses, I could see from my
hotel window. Funny how the tall, tall buildings live side by side
with very small buildings. Also seeing the harbour. Back to the hotel
and pay the bill. And then moving on.
Royal Ontario Museum, also called ROM. Egyptians. A copy of a small
really impresses me. Chinese. Dinosaurs. Yummy! Back to
the harbor, to take a trip on a boat. Boy, does our guide know some
tall tales of the town!
Hurrying back to the hotel. Getting back to the airport. Fumbling the
arrival, but in the end finding the right plane, and getting in there.

Oh joy! Seats that can do everything -
including getting almost like a bed! A personal screen, so you
can watch the movie you choose. Champaign, because you must
be really thirsty after getting on board. (And to impress those going

building the house bought a lot of cheap gold. Dusted the windows with
gold. Sold the rest of the gold later at a high price. And actually
got a profit. Apart from the dwellers not needing drapes when the sun
The beach, where you can get a tan naked, but have to put on clothes,
if you go for a swim!
Very safe building - 2000 workers, no injuries. But
the number of injuries on the freeway next to the rising tower rose
to 4 times what is was.
And over there they play dual pool: a pool table floating in a swimming
And finally: home. Actually it's Sunday morning now. But what the hey.
This has been a good trip, both the business part and the pleasure part.
