《重遊落基山班芙國家公園》__ 余晃英 (61)

二〇一六年五月廾三日至卄六日
闊別兩載惹相思
藍天碧水繫念茲
蒼山雄樹仍峙立
冷對遊子銀鬢絲

Sampling Islamic Culture by YK Chan

I.M. Pei designed the Islamic Art Museum, which opened in 2008 in Doha, the capital of Qatar. Islamic culture spanned three continents at its peak. For those who have not ventured overseas to the Islamic world, they can have a taste of the rich Islamic art and culture within Canada in Burnaby, BC, or Toronto, ON, where two Ismaili Centres are situated.

The Ismaili Centre in Toronto was opened one year ago. I recently had a chance to visit it and its adjoining Aka Khan Museum, which are located at a convenient site in Don Mills, standing out as a remarkable architecbtural landmark. One can browse the Museum web site (Aga Khan Museum) for detailed information on its events or booking a free guided tour of the Centre. Admission is free after 16h00 on Wednesdays.

The following are some photos I took during my visit.

《CCCC Day 24 — In GTA》__ Bonbon Hu (65)

Cross-Canada coast to coast  Day 24BB1

In GTA (Greater Toronto Area)

Got to sleep in this morning till 7:30am. With no agenda today, it was nice. I was even able to read Toronto Star while having coffee.

I took an afternoon nap, and it was great. I didn’t realize that I needed it.

After consultation with friends, family and my better half, Margaret, I have decided that this will be the final stop of the CCCC. So this would be the final entry of the blog. Continue reading

Cross-Canada coast to coast  Day 23

…..

I am homesick and lack of motivation to ride back to Vancouver from here. I have already fulfilled my missions. The odometer said : 9,500 Km since I left home 23 days ago. I’ll sleep on it, and I will sleep in.

Is this the end of this journey?
