train ride through calgary
the City of Calgary Route Ahead project’s twitter feed just posted a link to this awesome timelapse of a C-Train ride from the far northwest terminal (near my house), past my office (right before the first tunnel), through downtown, and then to the Deep South. I love me some HD timelapse train videos…
Behind the yellow line
caught the train today because my bike’s still in the shop. hopefully I get it back soon, so I can get riding again. the spacetrain is cool and all, but doesn’t come close to riding a bike in the morning…
crossing crowchild trail, before heading down to the train platform. I am so ready for the roads to clear just a little bit more, so I can get back on the bike…
I was going to delete the photo, but decided the grain and blur captured my morning mood better than a sharp and saturated frame from my DSLR would have. ugh.
the whole day felt a bit blurry and mindless.
Evan and I headed downtown to take in the exhibits at the Calgary Science Centre (I still can’t call it the Telus World of Science). The exhibits were a bit static, with nothing for kids to actually _do_, aside from a couple of touch screen demos. We had some really good discussions about Darwin and Einstein, but I don’t think he really got anything out of the exhibits because they were all look and no real touch.
then we took a cold train/bus ride home. this whole no-driving thing is getting kind of stale.
