But, well, trying not to think about how much it cost to fill up the tank. That's gonna leave a mark.
Anyway, left Montana early (spend the night in Shelby -- it was kind of funny in customs, they were like "so, you drove all the way from Denver just to spend three days in Canada?" Okay, yeah, I guess if you put it that way, it does sound a bit suspicous), hit Calgary a bit after noon, had dim sum in Chinatown (not the best dim sum ever, but dim sum is always a gamble. The shrimp dumplings were easily the best I've ever had. The pork dumplings possibly the worst).
We went to the top the Calgary tower. I might have gotten a bunch of awesome pictures, but I'd dropped the camera, and the lens was -- unknown to me -- jammed in f/4 (while the camera was metering for well, not exactly set for f/4), so pretty much every single picture I took all afternoon with the SLR was a total loss (from the tower, wandering around +15, the dim sum restaurant, the Korean restaurant front, mostly over-exposed to full frames of white). So you guys will be safe from those. On the other hand, I got the important pictures with the pocket camera, so it's fine. And what I really wanted that camera for was Banff tomorrow. Still a shame, though.
Anyway, we did the Korean BBQ at the Korean place a Japanese friend suggested (since she'd done a year of college in Calgary, although she lives in Tokyo or Kawasaki I think these days), which was great (almost keeping up the yakiniku tradition). And here we are, chilling out before hitting Banff tomorrow. Woo.
