A friend and I recently spent a lazy early-evening strolling the Art Gallery of Ontario, which was redesigned by architect Frank Gehry a few years back. He also designed the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
It's amazing how grown up and cultured a stroll around a museum can make you feel. Something about viewing ancient art and being in a quiet, refined space. It doesn't even matter that we caught up on each other's lives and giggled (under our breath) like schoolgirls the entire time!
The museum visit was followed by martinis (straight gin for me, chocolate for her) and tapas at an upscale bar in the financial district. Such a lovely way to catch up with an old friend and take in some of what the city has to offer.
It's such a warm, beautiful space now. Vast and eerily quiet, filled with so many beautiful treasures.
