Contiki - Okanagon / Calgary

Joined Contiki tour yesterday. Pretty hectic - bus took us from Vancouver to Vernon, in the Okanagon Valley - it's the Fruit producing valley for Canada.

21 young chikus + me :) plus the Tour Manager and driver. Mostly Aussies, some Americans and British. Had chinese buffet dinner - plenty of food.

6.30am morning call and left Vernon for Calgary - The Stampede (Rodeo). First time in a cowboy bar - lots of people drinking, dancing and loud music. They had a great band singing Country & Western. Interesting experience.

Left early with some girls and went to Walmart - shopping. Happy me - found 3 pairs of pants/shorts that fit pretty well. And 1 size smaller too from normal. Not that I've lost any weight. Eating like a horse (using cowboy metaphors since it's the rodeo:)))

Plan for tmr - Calgary Stampede. Yeehah.

Lucky you! Managed to meet some non-Asians who prefer shopping to parking in the bar.

I know:) Cos the rest of the group is bar bar bar, drinking and drinking until mabuk, yakking and picking up girls or guys.

Actually - one of the girls is a teacher, the other is a nurse. So pretty 'down to earth' people.
