Edmonton last day

On the morning of our last day in Edmonton we went by public transport out to Old Strathcona which has some lovely old features including the railway station which was very interesting. Our bus trip took us through the campus of the University of Alberta which is huge and has many lovely old buildings spread out over a large area. We seemed to be in university town of most of our trip. One thing we did notice was the cheerfulness of the students, how courteous they were and how happily they stood up to give others a seat. When they departed the bus en masse there was a happy chorus of thank you's for the bus driver which we thought was very nice.
For our last night we went to the movies. We always talk about going to the movies at home and rarely do, so we really enjoyed "The Family", with Robert deNiro and although it was fairly heavy on violence it was a great night.
Our next move is by plane from Edmonton to Calgary and then bus to Banff.
