30th June We did the tourist thing and went out and bought lots of souvenirs for everyone so be prepared for some excellent tat. Some more shopping at an Indian trading post where we could have spent the kids inheritance followed by some sightseeing at the Bow River which had a largish waterfall and the water was freezing. After that we went up to the Banff Springs Hotel(rather posh) and pretended like we were royalty by walking through it and sitting on the patio(a real one) the view was awesome. We then went to the hot springs and now we are cured of all ailments and are in perfect health it also turned Brendans blue hair a shade of green. At night we went across the road to the Youth Hostel for tea which served fantastic food and because the guy heard Bobbies Irish accent gave us a 25% discount as it reminded him of home-he was an Irishman that came for two weeks and has now been here for two years.
