First a shout-out to Canada, which, in the United Nations Development Program‘s Human Development Report 2009, released yesterday, ranked Canada with the 4th best quality of life for its citizens of all the nations in the world. Yay Canada! By way of comparison, our neighbours on the continent the United States and Mexico ranked 13th and 53rd respectively.
Unlike most Torontonians, G and I escaped Nuit Blanche events on Saturday night and retreated to the Westin Prince Hotel for an evening of drinks – trying another great bubbly – and movies (see Monday’s post). The Westin continues to undergo some very fabulous renovations. The changes to the lobby and restaurant areas, started about a year ago now are finally finished and are simply exceptional. Work begins on the elevators, pool and gym areas next. Well worth a visit if you want a quick getaway in Midtown.
G made a superb beef bourguignon with egg noodles and gremolata on Sunday that was too-die-for.
