Scott has been very kindly
driving me around Guelph so I can take some pictures of the area and so
here is my first collection for you to look at...
You are of course immediately struck by all
the grass and trees and the fact that most homes are of brick or stone.
There are actually quite a few small parks
throughout the city and most have a wee play area for children
And a bowling green!
Ducks sunbathing on the rocks :-)
Ah! I was spotted heading into a curry
shop... first curry since leaving Scotland!!! :-)
On the whole property
prices are going to be from around at the low end at $130,000, mid range
houses around $180,00 - $250,00 and of course lots of houses way over
$350,000. In other words it's going to be expensive living here depending
on what you do for a living. Mind when in Kimberley I said you'd
likely get a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house for around $80,000 well that's
going to be $180,000+ in Guelph. Same house in Kentucky is going to
be around US$25,000.
I hope to get an historical
tour around Guelph while I am here so if I manage it there will be losts
more photos to come :-)
