 Hallo a Leslie,
 Bha Calgary a'tadhal agam an Iuchair.
 I was visiting Calgary in July.

 Nuair gum bi thu an sin a rithist, trobhad 's gabh ti leam. 
When you are here again, come and take tea with me.

 S'toil leam. Tha i gle snog *around* Eau Claire Market.
 I like it.It is very pretty around Eau Claire Market.

   'Se baile breagha a tha Calgary, le mòran cnocan, ach le droch shìde,
fuar agus goathach ann.  Tha e coltach ri Alba gu ìre bheag, ach gun an
t-uisge.
   Calgary is a pretty city, with many hills, but with awful
weather, cold and windy.  It's like Scotland to a small degree, but
without the rain.

 Tha na beanntan . . .
 
 Tha na mara mor agus laidir cuideachd.
 The sea(ocean) is great and stong too.

'S toil leam na beanntan cuideachd, ach tha mi a' saoilsinn nach bi
mara ann.
I like the mountains, too, but I think there is no sea in them.
