I did a pickup for one boss and took away all my $$ and since i don't work weekend, A trip to canada was planned within minutes.

Chicago - Niagara Falls - Toronto - Chicago.

Drive from Chicago to Niagara Falls approximately 8hrs. Left Chicago 3pm and got to destination 12.08am

The hotel has a very nice structure but has the tiny room ever. I had booked 3 days on expedia with the option of pay now cry so i had to check out the next day...

The 4th picture is the Canadian Border(4hrs drive from Chicago)

Ayam not too good with typing.... grin

I guess I'll type from my pc and use my phone to upload pictures..

The ride to the Hotel was quite long, the road was free and was cruising on the road.

At the Canada Border, the immigration officer asked us(my wife and I) the following questions :

What is my status in the united state?
Can i have your resident card?
Where you guys going today?
Are you guys spouses?
When and how did you meet?
How long we have been married?
Where my wife works and her job roles?

Then told us to have a lovely night.

There was a toll right before the border. It was $5

He didn't tell us maximun of days we can stay in Canada. I find it surprising that US PR doesn't need a visa to visit US but a Canada PR needs Visa to come to the US. Well, thats part of the american dream grin..

I posted some of the pictures on facebook and most of the people were hailing me "Chairman, big boss etc" embarassed.

I simply told them its as if you are driving for lagos to Cotonou(apart from distance). its not a big deal neither is it consuming a big money out of my pocket but seems they choose not to believe me..

My problem actually started when I got to Toronto. I wasn't impressed one bit. driving in Toronto made me feel as if I was driving in Lagos. Really the difference is clear btw my precious Chicago and Toronto cheesy(Apologies to NLers living in Toronto).

I went to one african restaurant(Stevang Restaurant), The environment made me as if I am in Nigeria. Nigerians were way to many speaking core Yoruba. I was like see my people ooo grin.. Na so so Toyota cars full eveywhere lol..

I bought two plate of Poundo Yam totalling $31CAD. I offered to pay with POS. So i was told POS not working and i need to pay in Cash. I told her i wasn't from here and I only have USD with me. Na so the woman told me 1USD = 1CAD shocked

After a while, She accepted $30 from me still claiming the remaining $1. Na so I bone face leave the place. I googled the conversion rate and realized the woman ripped me off $9 cry but all good..

Na so one guy dey carry Shoulder give me for outside thinking i dey form when i said USD. In my mind, I was like look at this fool living in glorified Lagos dey carry shoulder. Only God will know what you will do if you dey live for America. When you have a visa to America, come and talk to me grin (In Twood voice) .

My drove round the town and went to downtown Toronto..

I find it so shocking they have so many high rise buildings. Heard those buildings are occupied by immigrants. See people spreading clothes on the pavement. Those places are so bleeped up they way people spread their stuffs outside. It is what we called Project houses in Chicago for low income people.

I like the google map readings in kilometre and the fuel in litres not gallons.

The fuel price on the board will be saying e.g 118.9. only God what that means. I am used to $3.09 at gas stations billboard but I am sure 118.9 doesnt means $118.9 shocked

I lodged in Hilton Garden Inn Toronto Brampton West. That hotel tight as fuvk.

Unlike my Chicago grin, I didnt set my eyes on no guys sagging, group of people smoking and everywhere is very neat

Conclusion : Can i Visit Canada again? YES.. Toronto ? HELL NO.
