Gold in Calgary

I'll be honest: I'm not too fond of American-style cities that sprawl for miles and miles, crisscrossed with 5-lane highways. I feel it's a waste of space. But maybe I'm just biased, being used to how European cities look like and having visited a few in Japan too. I apologize to Canadians for throwing their city into the same basket as American ones, but for an outsider they are just very much alike. The good news is, Calgary at least has a clearly defined downtown and enough diversity in terrain to create some nice vantage points for observing it.

We didn't win any gold during the '88 Olympics there, but the golden hour kind of makes up for this. (2012-06-18 Calgary, Canada)
