One of the benefits of bringing the world to our doorstep is that we get to see our city through a panoply of different eyes.  Gary Stephen Ross of The Walrus provides his take in the upcoming March 2010 issue entitled A Tale of Two Cities.  Perhaps this says it all: “…younger than she seems, less sophisticated than she might like, undeniably radiant, proud to be attracting attention but not quite sure how to deal with it, a little self-conscious as the first complications of maturity settle upon her. You can’t help but marvel at her good fortune, her beauty. You admire the earnestness of her endeavours. You envy the wealth of her possibilities.

You wonder what she’ll become.”
