0104--Toronto (ROM)

A much belated update to the blog . . .

Took a quick solo trip to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto in February. Hoped to see a cool textiles exhibit advertised on their web site, but was largely underwhelmed by its scope. A few interesting Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier pieces, but beyond that (and a few impressive bizarre silks) not much captured my attention.

Finished the afternoon perusing shops in the Bloorcourt neighborhood.

The BIG discovery was actually a Whole Foods market in Oakdale, which has been permanently added a Toronto-excursion pit-stop. Hard to believe we can't get one in Buffalo.
