Well, I'm not really in Toronto, I'm in Sao Paulo.  But I'm not going to write about Sao Paulo until my last day here, so here's the story of how I got here.

My flight from Edmonton to Toronto was supposed to be at 3:30, but we had heard that parking was impossible so we went to the airport really early.  Parking was far from impossible, so I was in the airport by 12:15 and figured I'd have a really long time to wait.  Instead, I found out that my flight was delayed by 6 hours and that I'd miss my connecting flight in Toronto.  Fortunately, the Air Canada gods smiled upon me.  I got shifted to a 12:30 flight and had to run like hell to make it.

3 hours early means 3 extra hours at the Toronto Airport, waiting for my Sao Paulo flight.  That brought the total up to about 6 hours.  Those 6 hours gave me a lot of time to reflect.  On how much I hate the Toronto Airport.
For those of you who care about Geoff's meals as much as I do, you'll be devastated to find out that in 6 hours, I failed to find that magical sandwich shoppe at the airport.  Instead, I settled on a 3 cheese buffalo burger.  My mouth said yes, my guts said no.

Sorry for the short and lame entry.  I'll write either tomorrow or the day after about Sao Paulo, maybe I'll actually have something to say by then.
