Calgary's Mayor Naheed Nenshi is no stranger to reaching out to residents over social media but on Sunday, it was Calgarians reaching out to him to offer birthday wishes.

The Mayor, who inspired several social media trends — such as #NapForNenshi and #NenshiNoun — in June for his handling of the flood, arrived in London, U.K., Sunday morning.

He said on Twitter he is spending the day wandering around and eating take-away pasty.
