Toronto trip, day 5

We watched Werner Herzog's Rescue Dawn at Paramount. This was an absolutely amazing film. Part of the fascination was that it was drawn from a real person's life. Herzog couldn't be there for the Q&A but one of the actors was there, and he said that all the actors had lost a lot of weight in a very short time for the movie. Great performances and wonderful acting.


One of the things on my to-do list in Canada was to have a crepe (sweet stuffed version of the desi dosa). We had lunch at Cafe Crepe.


The menu, look at the variety of crepes available.


Some people order right here.


We sat down inside.


And finally, the food !


Washed down with Canadian beer and a milkshake.


After filling up our stomachs, we headed to the Royal Ontario Museum. This and CN Tower were the only two attractions we used our City Pass at. We spent a lot of time at the various Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Greek exhibits there. Saw the Japanese warrior God dress (identical to the one shown in Harakiri) there!

Our last night in Toronto... Dinner was at Rasoee. Better than Dhaba, but overall, not impressed with the Indian food in Toronto at all.
