"We like to go walking and get lost.

If I have the opportunity to walk, I'm gonna walk it. I walk five kilometres every day. 2.5 to work, 2.5 coming back. Every morning, every evening.”

- Samia

"I do the same, unless I cheat and there's a Pogo outside our apartment in the morning.

We like to walk around and explore. So many different nooks and crannies and stores, heritage buildings with old signs and architecture. It's definitely a different pace than driving.

We moved here January 2016. I'm from Connecticut and she's originally from Mexico.

I think Alberta will always be a car place, just by virtue of the size and density. But I think Edmonton is taking the lead on making these places come alive. People can just read, interact, bike, walk their dog, eat.

Every day, since Samia works on 102 Street and I work on 105, she'll come and meet me. We meet and walk home everyday after work.”

Being involved in the arts community, the theatre community --- it’s a really great area to be in. There’s always something going on. All the festivals. It’s all here.

I feel like a lot of theatre artists live around in this area for that reason.
