I was so glad to see some snow, of course cycling is done now, but still. Man I need some snow in winter :)
This blog is by an Estonian discovering her childhood dream country Canada. Based in Toronto, but sometimes traveling. Looking for an Estonian connection in the far away country and giving away tips about what to see, what to do, what to experience. Hence the name of the blog: Toronto. Canada. Estonia.

We were hungry after leaving the movies and stopped at this pretty sketchy Pakistani restaurant. I have always wanted to eat from metal trays, as in the movies, so this time I could do it. Food was excllent, but quite hot! Almost had tears, but I will never forget the rainbow of flavours this food had. I love it!

This guy on the right was also a star of the night. Obviously intoxicated he interfered most of the dancing performances, as this one pictured. He was funny, but a nuisance. They guy on the left was a photographer and was doing a great job, but the girl in the middle with both of those guys on her side looks a bit out of the picture, if you know what I mean.
I signed up as a volunteer photographer for a art and busker festival "art+fusion". It was about music, dancing, performing, buskers, art, poetry, films etc. Basically everything you can think of, even strip-dancing and poker playing. I have quite an abundance of photos I took there, so I will break the galleries down to shorter ones for easier viewing.
Tartu College opened an exhibition about Alberta Estonians, who were the first to come to Canada and settle here. The community at this day is not very large, but it is still there and they are trying to keep Estonianism alive.
When I saw these shoes left for people to take in front of Tartu College, I didn't know that there is more in the store for me. Check my later post ;) But these fragile shoes look so perfect surrounded with all this concrete.
While walking down to Tartu College on a fine and spring-looking January Saturday I noticed how the trees are cut in Canada. Little branch by branch and then to the machine which breaks it all into wooden chips and wooddust. Simple and easy.

I know Riti from the kitchen. She helped me to mend my jacket and created a little pocket there, which I still cherich a lot even on this day. She is a fast chef and can do excellent multi-tasking. She had just returned back from Cuba, as you can tell by the tan :)

Not a likely scene to see - a seagull is after a ofsprey. I am sure it was some little baby situation, as the predator probably wanted to snatch them or something. Anyway, I am glad I got a shot of them hovering over the little pond.
The place I came to with my friend is a man-made land formation hovering over Lake Ontario. It is knows a good place for bird photography and that is what we came to do there. View to the Toronto skyline was absolutely beautiful.
