After a fairly uneventful, but waay too early flight, I’m in beautiful, snowy Calgary, Alberta. When the plane was landing, I assumed we were either above or in the clouds, since everything was white. But then we bumped on something so I looked out again: we were on the ground, the cold, snow-covered ground.

I grabbed some lunch with Yateser then fought through the traffic to head over to Yateser’s house, where I’m staying 2 nights. I went for a short stroll around downtown, which looks a lot better than it did. They’ve done a lot of gentrification, at least on the façades. A quick stop into Chinook Centre mall, which was no great shakes, it’s a mall like any other. I didn’t find what I was looking for.

And Yateser scored tickets to a Calgary Flames hockey game. So we headed over to the Pengrowth Saddledome for some awesome NHL action. I met a couple of Yateser’s colleagues and drank some beers.

Now it’s late, and time for bed. Nighty night!
