I now regret I did not post regularly when I was in Canada, but my internet access was limited and, to be honest, I had better things to do than being in front of a computer screen. However, I will try to share a bit of my trip and a few thoughts I had at the time.
For me, going to Canada was fantastic. I had never left Europe and had always dreamt to go to Canada, so when I arrived in Toronto, I was truly amazed.
The first thing that struck me when I arrived was how clean the streets were. I live in the countryside in a beautiful country and I am often horrified by how littered the streets, but also the countryroads, are. This is something that bothers me a lot as I mentioned in a previous post.
In Toronto and other places I have been to in Canada, the streets are litter-free. I found that really impressive for such a big city, especially since bins are not everywhere to be seen. Sometimes, they just tie plastic bags at designated areas; in other places, like around the University of Toronto, there are complex recycling bins. However, I have often seen people cleaning the streets , so I guess that not only people are more disciplined, but the government is also ready to spend money employing staff to clean the streets of the country.
