Last night, on the subway, one of them was playing Limbo Rock on the guitar, with many others clapping along. Two guys held one of their flags between them (the stick to which the flag was attached, that is) and, when the train came to a stop at the next station, several girls lined up and did the limbo under the pole.

Today I nobly helped a group of them cross the street. They were struggling to figure out how the crosswalk worked. To be fair, Toronto has an odd crosswalk system and it took me a while to feel comfortable-ish using them.
