“There are many Japanese restaurants in Calgary, so I often go to eat Japanese food. Canadians also love nature-enjoying activities such as picnics and hikes in the park and boating on nearby rivers. Sometimes I go camping with a friend from my host family who loves camping. My friends went camping almost every week!”
