My quest to find Calgary people to talk to about the city had gone smoother than it ever has tonight. I went downtown to a place called Eau Claire Market. It is a mall type place, but with more of a community feel. It has a lot of open area for sitting, coffee shops, restaurants, an art gallery, movie theatre gym and a bunch of random shops. It was there that I ran into Nathan. Amazingly he was the first person I approached about the blog, he was super nice and happy to talk to me. He did let me know he had only been living in Calgary for a year before we got started and I assured him that was just fine as I too had only been here a year :).
Thank you for being such a nice guy Nathan!
