Hello from Toronto! Anitra and I are here on a last-minute business trip of hers which also gave me the chance to catch up with my family (I’m originally from here) for Mother’s Day.
For the couple of days when Anitra will be attending the Discovery Conference at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, we’re staying at the Toronto Marriott City Centre hotel, conveniently located next door. It’s the hotel attached to the Rogers Centre (which I still refer to by its old name, “SkyDome”).
She’d booked a room at the conference rate, and when we arrived mid-afternoon yesterday, the front desk said that they’d just finished cleaning up a room that we could occupy immediately. It turns out that it was one of the rooms facing the stadium interior.
You can even open the windows to hear the crowd or catch a lucky fly ball:
It should make for a pretty nice office today.
This is a last-minute trip, and we’re around only until Thursday afternoon, after which we fly back to Tampa. Drop me a line if you’d like to catch up, and we’ll try to make it happen, what with work and family commitments.
