My name is Robert Brundage. I’m 23 years old and am currently in my fifth semester studying geography. I have been in Edmonton, the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta, since late July, and will be studying at the University of Alberta until December 18. I chose Edmonton because my father left here for Berlin almost 30 years ago. This semester offers me environmental and raw materials management courses that are relevant to geography – and the opportunity to find my inner Canadian.
