Back to Edmonton

It's been almost 3 years since my last trip back home, so I decided it was time to make another one. This year I decided to forego the annual Dragon*Con pilgrimmage and will be heading back to Edmonton September 6-13. Parents are getting older now, so I thought it would be better to see them sooner rather than later.

Hopefully the trip will be less of a pain in the ass than it was last time. I'll be flying United again, but this time I'm skipping the <air-quote>CHS-ORD-YEG route</air-quote> ("Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me") in favour of a hopefully less non-existent CHS-IAH-YEG route (YEG-EWR-CHS on the way back).

Naturally one of the things I'll be looking forward to the most is eating dim sum. It will also be nice to get back home and visit with friends again.

I wonder what new things I'll see when I get back there.
