Night And Day In Toronto’s Chinatown

Of course, when in Toronto two weeks ago, we ended up in Chinatown – again. Looks like I can never really escape my Chinese roots – wait a minute… I’m not Chinese!

Nonetheless, I feel at home in crowded Chinatown. The smell of the food, the colorful signs and displays, the multicultural atmosphere make me feel good. Plus, it’s a great place to take pictures. It’s not easy though. From my experience, people get really nervous when you pull out a camera in Chinatown. I usually don’t have problems to shot whatever I feel like it but each time I was eyed suspiciously as a photographer, it was in Chinatown. The funny thing is, still from my experience, most Chinese love to take pictures. Hell, each time I went to China, I had to pose for pictures!

In the evening, we had the best baozi (small steamed buns filled with cabbage, meat etc.) in a small restaurant. It looks a bit like that (these were homemade) but steamed.

You can see the full set of the pictures taken in Toronto here.
