A night in Calgary (the airport)
Our 18-hour whirlwind started with a 30-yard dash through 20-degree weather out of the terminal to the Delta Calgary Airport hotel across the street. We dropped out bags and grabbed a little dinner. We had some great B.C. sockeye salmon with artfully arranged vegetables, risotto with tarragon, and a Mission Hill merlot (yeah, they make wine in Canada, too).
The next morning, we went back across the street for a true slice of Canada – some Tim Horton’s coffee and the requisite box of Timbits to bring home before jumping a cab to WestJet headquarters on the other side of the runway.
