At Casa Loma

August 13, 2015

Today we toured Casa Loma. Casa Loma is a castle that was built for the Pallet’s. The castle stands on 5 acres of land. We were un sure of how we were going to find out all the information about the castle but when we got there we got free audio devices to listen to in each room. There was so much information to be told. One of the main facts that I learned that I thought was amazing was that back in the time when the Pallet’s lived in the castle, there were a total of 200 phones in Toronto and the Pallet’s owned 50 of them. We all gasped when we heard that number.

            As we finished up the tour we pretended to be Rapunzel and take picture with our hair going down a tower. Then we headed to Little Italy for lunch. We did not have a particular restaurant in mind so we wondered around searching for a restaurant. We found this outdoor restaurant and stopped there. Little did we know, we would be enjoying our favorite meal of the trip. I had what is called a scroll with beef, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and horseradish sauce. These scrolls were wrapped in a light tortilla like wrap and we got a side salad. It was AMAZING. We all got different things and decided everything was good.

            After lunch we headed to work and moved more wheelchairs and watched some semi final games. These games were really good and we had less wheelchairs to move so it was even better!
