Em - I was also very conscious of the fact that it was gone 8.30pm and getting dark. Then the mounties arrived!! Two policemen happened to walk through reception, Matt explained our situation and they very kindly offered to take us to a local hotel (best western) in a better area
a tour of the area before dropping us at the hotel. We spent more than we should have on accommodation tha night, but needs must and all that.
It was a gorgeous comfortable bed and we were safe. It all felt a bit surreal.
lured in by use of the advertised 'learn the use of the english language' we moved on to stay with 'Filiz' and 'Nirmla'.....or as i called them Fritz and Nisbit. their demonstration of english at least made us laugh, we will move on quite soon as we are living in a bunker which we have candle lit and it is only a size up from the days in my shell and just as dark!
Em - The house is fine and in a great neighbourhood/location, but we are in a bunker. Positives - clean comfy bed and great shower.
There are at least 3 other residents but we've seen only one, who we call Nimrod. The pic of Matt shows the limited facilities!!
We are now in the process of applying for jobs so keep your fingers crossed and we'll keep you posted.
Had a great day today, visited the harbour front saw the CN tower and headed to the entertainment district. The Harbour front area is a bit like the south bank with
lots of arty places. As the Toronto film festival is on there are lots of events and premieres. Look who we saw today by clicking on the pictures!! Recognise anyone?
