Phffewwwww.........back from another wonderful year at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival).......great weather, nice B & B, a varied assortment of films (5) and one discussion panel. The films were inspiring, moving, sad, hilarious, and visually beautiful. Films from France, England, Ireland, Turkey, and India. The only "stars" we saw this year were the two greatest actors of Bollywood films! That was a fun panel discussion to watch...something different...screaming fans...body guards and us trying to understand the accents! A new genre to explore. Of course there was time for shopping; "Om Mantra" on Queen St. W. was selling off all his small items to make room for more furniture from India. We hit the jackpot and drained the bank. Friday night was our treat night - a late dinner at "Sassafraz" but alas no stars were to be seen. The dinner was good, the company lively and our dear waiter gifted us all with a Sassafraz pen! Funny. I wonder how many kilometers were walked this past long weekend in Toronto? Maybe next year I'll wear a pedometer - just for fun.
