Day 2: From Edmonton to Calgary

We got up about 6am. First surprise came when I called a rental company at 8am. Although I requested a pick up from Edmonton International Airport in my on-line reservation and they said nothing against it, now they told me they didn't provide a pick up from EIA. So we had to take a bus to Edmonton and then they picked us up. We got a car without problems. The price was quite good but car's little bit older. But as we said it has four wheels and one steering wheel and it can go so it's ok. Jana should'have arrived to EIA about 1pm. We had some time to take a look around and buy some food. I must say there is something about Edmonton. It's propably a backcountry a little bit but it smells of north. If there is huge room in the USA, in Alberta there is twice more room. On the road to EIA, we stopped at McDonald's. I hadn't eaten almost for one day and double BigMac disappear inside me in one sec. After McD, we visited one food store and we found out Canada was more expensive than the USA (old golden Walmart). Jana's flight had a delay and she was unlucky (immigration office) like me so we had to wait for her until 3pm. Then there wasn't any roadblock to go to Calgary. The country between Edmonton and Calgary is really flat, full of farms. We didn't expect really much from Calgary but it was even far worse than we had expected. I have never seen so big concentration of junkies, homelesses and bums. If you go in streets you don't really feel safe. That's why we made just small walking in city centre. People are weird and there is really nothing to see. Calgary tower is ugly and nothing compared to CN Tower in Toronto. Calgary Fort is funny because it is just a few wooden walls. That's why we decided to make just small walk around, take some pictures and get out of Calgary. Tomorrow we go on to Banff NP.
