I really enjoyed listening to the audio walk! Although I didn't get
exercise I would have if I was actually walking ;)
I can also imagine it being very useful if I was walking around Toronto.
There could perhaps have been more description for me as someone who is
partially blind - other tactile cues perhaps, to help with navigation.
But overall, a fantastic experience.
The way the artist used sound and quiet, and thick descriptions and
information/history/facts. Beautiful.
