Continuing on with the Ottawa impressions, it was quite cold there all week. This caused a problem as Michelle refused to wear a coat, hat, or mittens. In addition, Michelle’s gums were hurting and she was missing Amber who had to work long hours there. So Michelle went on a bottle strike. Because of this, we were only able to go sightseeing on Friday.
We walked around in downtown and wandered about the Byward Market, Rideau canal (which works as a skating rink in the winter), National war memorial etc. We also took a tour of the Parliament. We were the only non-Canadians in our tour group.
One thing we noticed in Ottawa was that there were lot of French Canadians there. When we had been to Canada last time, we didn’t meet any, but that was in Toronto.
Here are a few photographs.
