G and I spent Friday at Pearson International, over-nighting at the Sheraton, which is – some would say – far too close to the landing runways at Pearson. Our room shook as the planes flew, seemingly metres above, the hotel’s roof.
The newest Sheraton at Pearson features a pretty fine restaurant and prides itself on good cuisine (quite rare for hotels near airports). We opted to stay in and sample the in-room service, which appeared within 30 minutes of our order.
1) here comes one; 2) duck or it’ll hit you
Saturday morning we had our interviews with the Americans at Pearson that included iris scans and finger printing. After a 30-second ethernet journey to FBI Headquarters in Washington for final verifications we both are now FBI-approved. Woohoo! That will certainly make things much easier as we continue our adventures.
On Saturday night we took advantage of a discount we had for Westin and stayed at the Westin Harbour Castle, overlooking Toronto Harbour and the Islands. We opted again to try the in-room dining – and really pigged out, ordering calamari two-ways, 3 micro burgers, a California cob salad and a pizza with every blessed topping on it save the kitchen sink. Blee joined us and it was good fun eating and watching Julie & Julia.
7 & 8) the sweeping view of the harbour and Toronto Islands from our room – is that a November sky or what?

Yesterday, G added meat pie-making to the day’s agenda. G’s meat pies are TOO-DIE-FOR and are as good as my mom’s. I’d be stuck having to pick a favourite. Well done G!
