Managed to upload last night’s electrical storm video.

People with what I assumed were either Ghostbusters or flame throwers for sealing tarmac are actually petrol power insecticide machines for pumping out billowing clouds of the stuff.


Had a nice walk along the Malecon and watching the waves crashing in.


Edited: Toronto airport. Ahhhhh, a burger.
