Day 1: Markham
Yesterday, I wrote down a log of the things I did, but I decided against publishing it. It bored me to do it, so I'm sure that it would bore you to read it.
My friends and I took a "road trip" to Markham - about 45 minutes away. A coupla weeks ago, my friend, B who lives there came here to hang out w/ me. We were talking about how each GTA city seems to have their own identity, so I decided to visit him!
Markham is known for its all-you-can-eat / buffets - apparently there's a difference - sushi / Korean BBQ / hot pot / etc. restaurants. There's also a high concentration of Asians, in particular Chinese immigrants.
I'm not one of those Asian people who hangs out exclusively w/ other Asians or am I much of a participant in all-you-can-gorge fests, but I thought a trek to another city would be like a day-long getaway!
And it was. As I felt slightly out-of-place as I do when I travel to foreign lands.
I asked B if Markham was the GTA city that's most resembled Hong Kong and he said, "No, that would be Richmond Hill."
