What I Learned from the trip

In class we learned about all the different types of land-uses, but I never fully understood how distinct each one was until we went to Downtown Toronto. The trip to Downtown Toronto was very useful and extremely fun, we walked from Kensington market ( low order goods and medium order goods) to the Eaton Centre( urban part of Toronto ). We saw all the different land uses and how important each one was. Overall the trip was very useful we were able to familiarize ourselves with the types of land-uses and enjoy ourselves while doing so.
