‘Cause Alberta doesn’t suck, but Calgary does…
Every time I think of Calgary, this song lyric pops into my mind. It’s the final line in a song from a brief tv show in the early 90’s on CBC titled “Three Dead Trolls In A Baggie”.
I’m not a fan of our neighbourly province. However, we are here in town for the Calgary Expo. The best reason to head into Alberta. It’s the sixth year we have driven to this convention. I really don’t know any other reason to cross the Rocky Mountains. The views through the mountains are beautiful though.
I love Calgary. It is one of my favorite cities in Canada. I love driving around it. I love the people here. It’s a big city with a small town feel. Even the high rises aren’t that tall. We are staying at my first Airbnb. It’s a lovely corner apartment on the outskirts of Calgary. The view of the city is worth the cost. What we are paying here for five nights is what we would have paid for two nights in a hotel. So far, so good!
