Retro: Feeling Very Canadian

by Jim on 23 October 2016

Now here’s a classic picture, taken on this day 10 years ago.

I believe this was at the bottom of the Calgary Tower. We did a lot of “site-seeing” in October, mostly while hanging out with friends for the last time before moving to Mexico. This was just over one week before we left, actually. It was a day off before we got back to work with last minute packing/documents/etc. One last “Canadian” moment, before focusing on Mexico!
