In Calgary we stay with friends we made in the Caribbean, last seen on Statia and Saba where we hiked mountains and ate chinese food. Back in Canada they have a beautiful home filled with lovely art and, more importantly for some, a den with games and big screen tv. We relax and feel very much at home. Gesa meets an old friend in town, whom she hasn't seen for over ten years, and we discover a city of fossils and gemstones. At last the day comes to go to the airport and fly off to Vancouver Island and a whole new adventure.
