Where I stayed
Description de l'évènement :
From Monday to Friday I didn't have any problem with my buses trip to downtown Calgary and didn't have any problem neither with the Calgary train to go around the different neighbourhoods of this big city, but Saturday I had my first encounter with the weird hours of the bus here. But let start with the beginning of this incredible story. Saturday afternoon I took the bus 17 from regal park to downtown Calgary since I had to go meet my two Brazilian friends in downtown since we had planned to go to the mall, to do a little bit of shopping for our girlfriends and maybe after watch the movie Limitless with Robert Deniro. Anyway enough details writing, well after watching that movie we decided to go back to our respective home stay houses. So I took back the CT Train back to downtown everything went well I had a conversation with an African guy who just arrived from London, after 5minutes I got off the train in downtown and headed north to Chinatown to take my bus back to regal park. Normally my bus passes at every 15 or 30 minutes so I was just in time it was 18:15 so I told myself that in the worst case I'll catch the one that will passes at 18:30. After 40 minutes of waiting for my bus it wasn’t there so I decided to ask another bus driver if bus 17 will pass soon and she said that bus 17 stopped its run at 17:00, so I had to take a cab back to my home stay house.
Réflexion: Even thought I’m living in a big city, I had to learn that some neighbourhood are more calm than other so buses may stop their runs sooner than others so next time instead of thinking that every buses circuit is running 24/7, I have to plan my day with the schedule of my bus and a local taxi number could be worth being in my cell phone. Since it’s an hour walk from my home stay house to downtown Calgary.
