The weather was so nice after work that I decided to take a little hike. I begun on a trail that I THOUGHT was the beginning of the Bow River Trail but I ended up on the Hoodoos trail. A lovely Canadian lady pointed me in the direction of the road which would lead back to the road I started on.

It ended up being a good little mistake because I came across a beautiful lookout over the falls that I hadn't seen last time because I wasn't bothered to walk up the street any further. Unfortunatly I found it just as a bus load of Asians arrived 😞 so I walked down to the not-as-magnificent but far more private lookout where at the bottom of the cliff and across the river was a chubbly little Asian kid waving like mad at me. I waved back of course and thus begun 5 or so minutes of very energitic waving between me, the chubby little Asian kid and his family.

After my little meeting with the Asian tourists of Canada I walked to town and purchased some toilet paper (the highlight of my day by far) and other assorted grocery items where I was served by the guy-with-dreadlocks-who-I-met-at-church. He was very friendly and even showed me where the over-sized nail polish remover was (apparently 100ml is simply not a exisiting measurement in Canada).

Loaded with 3 full shopping bags I tried to find a taxi......I could not, so I walked home and I am all the more skinnier for it (more chocolate!) My cucumber fell out of the bag and made me feel a little silly but that was the only really terrible part of my day.

Well I think you all have a good account of what I did today after work up until I started to write this blog. Hope it was amusing, also I included some photos of my lovely detour I took by mistake. (They are iPhone photos so don't expect much ok)

Lots and lots of love,

Hurry Up!
You better be packing - I'm missing you so much! Banff is so much prettier when seen in real life and not thru my iphone. By the way I am still getting my filipino influence even without you here - I am one of only three non-filipino girls on house-keeping staff - they are even trying to set me up with one of their guys! reminds me of you everyday :)
