Walking down Queen Street, you can't help but notice what has become protest tourist points.
 
At Queen and John, person after person pose in front of the police lined up in riot gear. Across the street, a Starbucks with its windows smashed in is constantly circled with snapping cameras. CNN is among them, but also other media -- and the protesters, too.

A bit west, two mailboxes tipped on their sides and strategically placed to interrupt traffic also attract attention. One man marches up and drops his pamphlet in one.

Farther west, crowds of protesters encircle a circle of police standing around a cruiser with its windshield and rear window smashed.

And now we continue east. Stay tuned.
