Skyline view, Toronto, Canada
Toronto is a Canadian city with true American values. Toronto is the most diverse city in the world. In the last 40 years the visible minority population has grown from 13% to almost 50% and is expected to become the majority in 2017. It is also interesting that the minority is not dominated by any one race or culture but distributed between multiple cultures from Jamaica to South Asia. The numbers might tell a story but stepping onto the streets of Toronto emphasizes it emphatically. At the end of our trip we couldn’t recall if people spoke English in Toronto or not.
Sometimes Black and White photos can paint the vision in my head better. When this wave of a cloud approached, it felt like a cozy blanket covering up the sky and maybe it was the gray of it all but all I could see was monochromes.
