Edmonton & Montreal

I made my first trip to Edmonton yesterday, it was a business trip.  It only took me 2.5 hours or so to get there, great time.  The QEW2 was not busy, it is so nice driving along a major highway without killer traffic.

I arrived shortly after 8am.  Left around 5:20am or so and I stopped for a bit for a coffee – horrible coffee I will mention (Petro Canada) and some 5 hour energy – extra strength.  That stuff is amazing.  On an empty stomach, it gives you an instant boost.

So, I get to Edmonton and check in with the receptionist and who’s there to greet me?  Well, Montreal of course.  I don’t think I have mentioned Montreal as yet.  He’s a new BDO employee, from, you might have guessed, Montreal.  His parents are billionaires and owners of the Nair hair removal company.  I guess he wanted to be just like the rest of us and work a regular job.  He has a doctorate in electrical engineering (I think it is) so he must know his stuff – I am impressed with anyone who’s done that much schooling to have a doctorate.

Visited with him for a bit (he was in Calgary for 2 weeks training) and then met with the IT guy.  We toured around the Edmonton office and then visited his 2 other supported sites in Edmonton.  Stopped off for lunch at Edo Japan, amazing meal and got some sweets at an Italian bakery.

Headed back towards Calgary around 4:30pm.  It was a long day but a good one.

Heading south to Lethbridge today – shouldn’t be as long a day as it was yesterday.  My tour of Alberta will be just about done, heading to Grand Prairie sometime in lake July.
