Downtown Edmonton is a bit of a mess right now. It has been raining a lot and there are construction and repair projects going on everywhere you look. Trying to find your way around either on wheels or on foot is a bit of a challenge, but in doing so you might see some things you don’t normally see.
When I was there on Tuesday I decided to walk from Jasper and 101 Street to Churchill Square. The only reason I wanted to go there was to see if there was anything interesting on the Happy Wall. It turned out that the route was very circuitous, but on the way I saw some cheerful murals on construction hoardings. Then, when I eventually got to Churchill Square, there was a message that I decided was from a visiting Brit because it had a London accent. It must have been meant for me!
