Alberta’s municipalities have more than 25 sister cities, but for some reason Houston, Texas, isn’t one of them. Maybe that’s because the kinship is stronger than that – we’re blood brothers, if you will, with billions of dollars’ worth of oil and related commercial activity flowing back and forth annually. And that number is sure to increase after three Keystone Pipeline delivery points are completed in the Houston area this year. But America’s fourth largest city is also oozing with top-notch museums, decorated chefs and impressive bars, all of which make for a pretty engaging – and enjoyable – business trip.
