We returned from the Rockies and donned our removalists hats for the task of packing up our things ready for our move to Toronto. We hired the van and filled it with our wordly goods (its amazing what you accumulate in four months!) and headed off the the inter-faith furniture store.
On the way home we had a big Brekky at Nellies, which set us up for our day of cleaning. This brings us to today, we had our inspection, gave back the keys and headed to the airport for our flight to Toronto.
We are excited to be going but also sad to be leaving. We enjoyed our time in Calgary and will miss the friends we made. Calgary was an interesting city, a mix of country town and city, Calgary is slower paced than Sydney, but still had a lot to offer. Without being too negaitve we were concerned about the drug epidemic that has led to a high rate of homelesseness and poverty in the city. We were regulary asked for money when walking downtown and felt that the problem really tarnished downtown Calgary. We enjoyed 17th Avenue though and had a number of favourite eating spots. We also enjoyed our long afternoons at Chinook Mall followed by a movie.
To everyone in Calgary who contributed to our time there, thank you and we look forward to keeping in touch and perhaps seeing you in Sydney some time!
