Whenever I see this building, it reminds me of the times I have been in Paris. I absolutely adore the Parisian architecture. I love that in Paris, you can stand on a street corner and admire half a dozen buildings like this one.

for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
