Overheard, walking to the Tower of the Americas…

…last Friday evening, as I was musing on going up in the CN Tower in Toronto some 15 years ago, which was the last time I was in anything like the TotA…

My mother, on the CN Tower: “It’s taller?”

Me: “Yeah, just a little over 1800 feet. The observation deck is about 1500 feet up.”

Sabra: “Well, it’s smaller with the exchange rate.”

Me, larfing and larfing: “That is SO going on the blog when we get home!”

Well, it would have, but I am just now remembering it. 😉

The Tower of the Americas was pretty cool, though. I’d love to go back and get pictures.

    Next time you go up to the top, as you’re exiting the elevator, look down. There’s a gap in the threshold, and through it you can see all the way to the ground.

    Uh, only do this if you’re not afraid of heights.

    😀

    LMAO Albatross. In the CN Tower at the observation deck, they have a small glass floor and you can stand on it and do that — see all the way to the ground, 1,122 feet below. Did that too. I stood on it & looked down for about 2.5 seconds. 😉 It was pretty nifty, too!

    I would look!

    For about two seconds!
