today was the opening day of the Calgary Stampede, that the organizers call “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” . Well, that might be an arguable statement, but it’s definitely something big. The core of the show are daily rodeos and chuckwagon races, so as you can guess the whole show has a strong western theme. To get in the atmosphere we decided to wear a cowboy hat before heading down to the Stampede Park...hmmm, finding a hat of the right size was a bit of problem so it was actually the hat that was wearing us
Down at the park it was very crowded: fun fairs, markets, animal exhibitions were all packed with people, but eventually smaug found a “quiet” spot where we could take some group pictures overlooking the park.
You can even see Calgary downtown
What a long day! And when we came back I jumped in a suitcase to start my journey, I am so excited ! All the other TVs wished me god luck and sammino gave a lot of instructions to Sigfrido about my well being. I am actually very happy that Sigfrido will travel with me for a while
