I seem to have lost my phone. Normally this would only be inconvenient, but I am going to Canada in a few days and need to stay in touch with my son when we go in different directions, also communicate with the people I'll be seeing there. Do coffee shops generally have free wifi in Toronto and Montreal?

If you were my phone, where would you be?

ETA: Found! It was resting on a ledge between the headboard and the wall, which kept the phone securely hidden from sight. Since I was smart enough not to turn the ringer back on after leaving the library, it was also safe from discovery by sound!

Unfortunately, I can never even guess where my phone is and rely on emailing friends to ask them to call it so I can narrow the location down by ear. However, I can vouch that there's bound to be a wifi spot on nearly every corner in Toronto and Montreal. Among the more popular chains, Starbucks, Tim Hortons, and McDonalds will generally always have service.

In addition to the usual suspects like McDonald's and Starbucks, Montreal at least has a good municipal Wi-Fi program that a lot of small businesses and tourist attractions are signed on with - it's called Ile sans fil and you can get the map here http://auth.ilesansfil.org/nodeextra/map

If I were my phone, I would have gone through the laundry last week and been unfindable elsewhere. But I'd also be fine now after rice and recharging. I don't imagine that's much help, but it's amusing. Good luck finding yours.

Many coffee shops in Toronto will have free wi-fi. The Toronto-based chain called The Second Cup always has reliable wi-fi. Public libraries are also a good bet.

Sometime on Monday maybe? I have a nursing home service in the morning, but most of the rest of the day could be flexible, at least at this stage.

(You'd also, of course, be welcome to come to our odd Saturday night service if you wanted -- it's more like an informal discussion group and potluck club than anything else.)

Simone isn't really much of a reader. She likes to flip through magazines with lots of pictures, mostly. She can read, but it's mostly a functional skill for her (recipes, directions, etc), not often a source of amusement. Although my friend Maria found a graphic novel series for little kids called Babymouse, which she seems to enjoy.

Schedule becoming less flexible, as it does -- it now looks like after 3:30/4 on Monday would be best ... unless you want to drop by the lunch-hour Sacred Music concert at Trinity at 12:15, and possibly have lunch with some musicians afterwards if anyone is free, but later afternoon might be better for visiting.

I'm meeting someone at the church at 3, and I'll be free for the day once that's done -- it's just a meeting about renting the space, and shouldn't be more than half an hour. So if not at Trinity, then why don't you come by the church at 3:30 (or later, if that's more convenient). It is right on College Street, which is a major street with a streetcar line. College Street is more or less the south boundary of the U of T campus, and my church is just a few blocks west (the nearest main north-south street is Spadina, and then we're a block west of that). Address is 365 College St.

Trinity Chapel should be easy enough to find. Trinity College is on Hoskin Avenue, north side, just east of the Robarts Library (which is probably the major campus landmark). If you go in the main Hoskin Street doors and turn left, the chapel is right at the end of the hallway.

I will PM you my cellphone number ...

And by the way, though I will unfortunately be out of town all day Wednesday, one of the touristy things that is fairly essential (and near the university) is to wander through Kensington Market. I don't know whether the church will be open or not that day, with me being away, but if our music director is in doing home improvements, it may well be. It's a lovely building.

Would you like me to phone, so your cell phone will make a noise?

Many coffee shops have free wifi in Toronto, but it's not universal.

Sure. That'd be delightful. I'm not entirely sure when you're in town, but I'd love to try to make something happen.

Oh, hey, I totally should have responded to this sooner. Yes, my work is in Toronto, in the downtown area.

Are you up for dinner tonight? Do you have a favourite cuisine? I think [personal profile] the_siobhan is interested in joining us.
