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.



Laugh wan kill me die for here grin grin

At the US CBP, questions asked were

What is your status in the US?
Pass me your passport and your PR
Have you ever applied to schools in the US
Have you ever schooled in the US
What is the name of the school
Did you meet with someone in Canada
Did you see the Niagara fall
What kind of work do you do
Are you bringing in any alcohol to the US
Are you guys married

She then told me to put my car in PARK and searched the boot. then let us in.

Total amount spent on trip was less than 500$

NB: Ever since I have been born, I have never guided something jealously and carefully like my green card. I kept checking on it every hour make village people no reason my matter grin
