Banff, la rue Principale


Banff Main Street.
Ce matin, nous prenons notre temps. Au petit-déjeuner, nous parlons avec des Françaises et notre serveuse, qui vient des Philippines. Nous traînons un peu au Café Internet de la ville.
This morning, we take our time. At Breakfast, we talk with 2 nice French ladies, and with our waitress who comes from the Filippines. We then go to an Internet Café...



Nous rencontrons en chemin un artiste américain avec qui nous jasons.
We met an American artist and talk with him too!


Après une heure d'internet, nous nous promenons dans la ville et visitons quelques magasins. J'achète une belle ammolite, une pierre fossile provenant des coquilles d'ammonites, des créatures ayant vécu dans une mer chaude intérieure des Rocheuses, il y a 70 millions d'années. Cette pierre ne se retrouve qu'en Alberta. J'espère faire un beau bijou avec elle....
After one hour on the net, we take a walk in the city of Banff. I buy an ammolite gemstone. It comes from fossil shells of ammonite sea creatures that lived in a warm inland sea 70 millions years ago. It can be found only in Alberta. I hope to create a nice necklace with it.

Swiss houses, Swisscard, mountains.... If it wasn't for the matrioskas in RCMP uniform/moose, I would have never thought it was Canada :D

Boy, does that bring me back. I spent a night courtesy of Queen Elizabeth (and the local RCMP) at the local jail in Banff.

Ah, Sweet Youth!

It's the Switzerland for the Japanese...Hheheh. Probably less expensive than the real one. I remember when I went in the real Switzerland, Sandra, everything was sooooooooo expensive!

I'm feeling a bit better, Catnap! Thanks! You know, Banff is very cold, even in Summer. Nice but cold... Like one of my ex...hehehhe... :D

Nanuk! I knew you were a bad boy! :) I'm sure the RCMP guys were very polite! :)I once knew one that.... but that's another story.... Hhehehehe...

Trop drôles ces poupées russes à la canado!
Devant l'étal des bijoux, LAPIN a un petit air frustré...! Une légère
crise de vedette?

Ca va mieux? Certain?
