I’m in upstate NY visiting my family. I spent the last three days with my grandpa. He lives in the Finger Lakes region, south of Rochester, and on a whim we decided to take the new ferry from Rochester to Toronto for the day yesterday. This was a tremendous adventure for my grandpa, who at the age of 85 had his first subway and streetcar rides. We went up the CN Tower, which completely thrilled him; he’ll be talking about it for months, I’m sure.
