First stop of my Western
Canada vacation was at Winnipeg, MB jokingly known also as Winterpeg! Stayed
with Darren Meijer and his family at Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Assiniboine Park in
the morning of June 29, then passed by the Manitoba Legislative Building and
took a picture of the
Statue. In the afternoon, we went to the
Winnipeg Canadian Mint. We were able to hold a real gold bar worth
US$250,000. The bar was chained but if was in the Philippines, Imelda
Marcos may have stolen it already.
Darren took a picture of
me while on the phone, still working.
After a day's tour, we had
BBQ and chilled out in front of a bonfire.
Following day, we spent
time with Nicki's family by the lake. I experienced the bites of obese
mosquitoes in Winnipeg. The mosquitoes were really big! Went swimming
at Darren's pool and left for Calgary the following day.
