Tonight I went to the Orthodox Easter service. Just came back with a few pictures (sorry for the quality, it’s the best I can do with my camera at night).

      It’s in downtown Toronto. I think that it was built in 1910. The (not so) funny thing about the church is that it’s located next to Regent Park, one of Toronto’s most notorious projects, which was created in the 1960’s to provide affordable housing, but is now dominated by drug dealers and strange characters with beards and long robes. That’s not a big deal Sunday morning, but when you go there for the midnight service on Easter, it’s a little bit scary.
