EVERY time we use the subway, some kind, usually young person comes forward and asks if we need help. We are totally convinced that if this happens with tourists, they will have a wonderful impression of Toronto. This past week, we were even offered assistance in an elevator in 'The Bay'! Granted, we take our time and read signs so as not to get going the wrong way, guess this gives us away as out-of-towners. We consider ourselves pretty "with it" grannies for sure, but we must look like we are totally dazed and confused.
I wonder if it's our get-up??? I mean can urbanites tell suburbanites at a glance? We wondered if it was our grey hair, our glasses or possibly the cigars. Not sure, but we are happy to take all the help we can get. It's a mad city out there.
