Dear travel diary:
I found myself walking through the West Edmonton mall in the heart of Edmonton, Alberta. It is a huge mall. It's so big in fact that it is rated as the largest mall in North America. In one trip to the mall I was able to go ice skating, sat at the beach, take in a pirate show and ride in a submarine. I even saw a few flamingos.
Edmonton was a nice city but the local garden gnomes are a little dangerous. This one had a knife! I wanted to go shopping in the store, but I thought better of it.
