My stay in Calgary was for a short span of time, summer mainly, to volunteer at a non-profit organization that performed engineering and architectural services for impoverished communities around the world. I was placed in a home located in the hills of Calgary, close to slides that were used in the 88′ Olympics. It was a lovely neighborhood full of greenery and plants, good for short hikes with views of the river and downtown Calgary. Toronto was an even shorter trip, a span of two weeks, mainly to visit a friend from college. Touring was mostly done by foot, except for the drive to Niagara Falls.
