The Olympic Torch Passes Through

The Olympic Torch Passes Through

The atmosphere in the coffee shop turned festive and crowded during buildup to the Olypic torch passing through Toronto.

Led by a big Royal Bank truck, and a Coke truck which were decked out in lights in the symbol of the Olympic rings and with people with megaphones as sort of a warm up.

And then in the distance, the flame from Mt. Olympus could be seen, from about 50 yards is was visible, and surprisingly big - the plume of the flame was a good 18" to two feet.

Slowly, but relentlessly, the flame and runner went by. It was dark at 6 oclock here as it passed and the pictures are not great. You can see it briefly, coming and going, in the last two photos.
