I drove all the way to Edmonton to see Renay yesterday morning. I've had booked a car from Hertz through the net. So when I woke up in the morning I drove to 10th Ave. SW, parked my car behind Calgary Tower and walked to Hertz and got the car, an automatic Pontiac Firebird . The road was not very crowded. At first I felt a little bit tired but got better later. I got a room in Super 8 and called her. She told me where she is and I drove to the mall she mentioned. Kingsway Garden Mall is in the north of the city while my hotel is in the south. I crossed North Saskatchewan River and headed up north. Edmonton is a beautiful city. I'll be there again in summer.

It tastes good and doesn't have much alcohol (I guess just about 15%) and that's women's favorite. Today, 01.01.05, reminds me of a good memory of the firsts days I came to Canada . When I just arrived after 2 days staying in a hotel, I settled down in D. H. 's house, a crazy but nice in a way, guy from Bangladesh , who has been living in Canada since his high school years. In the first day of 2002 there was a very nice fight between him and one of his tenants Ali A. , a guy from Abadan who flee to the US after Iran-Iraq war began in 1980 . On that time Ali A. used to live with a black guy, Montel and what I did in just a month is ruined their reputation and blamed many things on them. D. H.  got very angry with them and they got very mad at me! So on that day Ali A. and the landlord threw punches at each other and Ali grabbed his throat an
