Toronto to Jamaica via Korea?

0218, originally uploaded by Xander N'Dante.

Doing some last minute errands passing by Long and Mcquade to search for a new Takamine, going against the setting sun from Korea town the smell of Bulgogi and Kimchi merged with a mid day latte.

such a clash and marriage of cultures along this stretch of Bloor st.

In a trade off of Korean BBQ, for some "Jerk" I'm leaving for Jamaica @ 4:30 am.

Have a great week.. be back next friday.

If Jamaica has cyclists i'm off to find out.

The rooftop of the Gladstone hotel is no stranger to me, as me and my brother who used to have the Loft view beside it used to gaze out over Queen st and watch the cyclists ride by. This was prior to the, "Condofication" of the Toronto Skyline.

Those were the days when rent was cheap(er) and the view was free.

Also with compliments of the Gladstone hotel was this issue of, "Dandyhorse."

Dandyhorse is one of my favorite Toronto publications as it captures the essence of Toronto's cyclists in a complete circle which includes articles on commuting, couriers social cycle culture, residents, retailers and of course "Cycle Chic". This mix helps to promote a positive advocacy of Toronto on Two wheels.

I plan on framing the wonderful, "Lovers Lane" centerfold by artist "Marlena Zuber"

The weekend slowdown hits the city.
We trade in construction for uncrowded lanes.
This decline in suburban traffic creates space.
Leaving the locals to enjoy their afternoon sun soaked streets.

Taking the time to pause and chat to their favorite pedestrians.
