On July 1, 2017 I have seen the most beautiful fireworks of my life. They started from the CN Tower then they moved to Harbourfront, with the fireworks starting from Toronto Island, and at the end at Nathan Phillips Square. I did not have the opportunity to see the fireworks at Nathan Phillips Square, instead I had the best view for the CN tower’s fireworks.

Fifteenth: Westfield World Trade Center

As last post for April I want to start a little series about New York. Few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to NY, for a long weekend, with other exchange students. It was amazing. NY is a beautiful city full of energy and with lot of things to see. In every corner you turn you can find something amazing.

The picture I will show you this week are about the Westfield World Trade Center. This beautiful building is a shopping center situated near the World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial. The architecture is amazing and I loved it the first time I saw it. The external curves are beautiful and I think I took some nice pictures (click here to see them). The interior is well lit and very big. I’m not a shopping person but is a nice place where to shop.

I suggest to everyone going to NY to go and take a look!

Robarts Library opened in 1973, named for John Robarts 17th premier of Ontario. The library houses more than 4.5 million bookform items, 4.1 million microform (microreproductions of documents for transmission and storage) items and 740,000 other items. Nowadays is part of the University of Toronto Libraries.

You can visit the two libraries for free. The entrance for Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library is inside Robarts Library. The architectuer is amazing from outside and inside.

You can visit only a little part of Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library due to the restriction to preserve the books. Not everyone can touch and read the books and to consult the those you need a special permission. If you don’t have it you must stay in a floor where you can see the Library but not go around.
