A Return From the Canada. Back in Los Angeles

“There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits”
 Robert Southey

After a week in Edmonton, Canada, I'm back home. 

It was a busy week of working, not sleeping quite enough (those long Canadian nights really kept me up)!

But it was a great experience of seeing a  different part of the world, meeting new friends, and learning a little more about installing Autodesk Vault in the process.

Canada, you're a great neighbor with wonderful people.  I'm grateful for the opportunity I had to visit! 

But while I enjoyed the trip, and I'm grateful for the experience, it's good to be home!

I have some ideas for a future blog or two coming up.  But for this Friday night, here's a few of pictures from the trip.  Tonight, I have an appointment to catch up on some lost sleep!  They're long summer evenings meant I was staying up a little later than a boy should!   :-)

The Maple Leaf.  I'm not in the U.S. now!
I saw electrical connections in every parking lot.  At first I thought Edmonton might have a lot of electric cars.  Then I found out it was for the engine block warmers!  In winter it can get well into negative digits!

Open fields in a city.  Not something you see much of in Los Angeles, sadly.

The view of Downtown Edmonton from Sherwood Park, were I stayed.

A friend who is an Edmonton native hooked me up with the local Starbucks!  Thanks Irene!

All over.  My ride back to L.A.'s concrete jungle.
