Day 2 – 3

My companion and I spent the next day checking out the route to the workplace.  Google Maps shows a 2 km walk, but it’s uphill.  It’s always a good idea to check out the place first so we don’t get lost trying to get there on the first day of work.

The trek to the workplace showed us both how physically unfit we were.  After climbing many flights of stairs, up many slopes, taking a few wrong turns, and thirty minutes later, we made it there.

Needless to say, this walk provides VERY good exercise for the both of us.  I think I’m going to try walking up to work everyday.  Hopefully this habit will stick!

The terrain around here makes hillside houses to be very common.  It’s not like Vancouver where most of the land doesn’t allow for this as much.

I found it interesting how there were little ramps there that strollers could follow.  The person pushing the stroller could walk on the steps in between.  I’ve never seen any of those in Canada.
