In the past week we visited Ottawa. It is not too far from our current airbnb and was a no brainer in regard to something we really wanted to do. When we arrived the first building that struck us was the colorful Metro Station. We were blown away by the architecture and history. Hearing from various people talk about the battle of 1838 it reminded me that the U.S. has been part of the well oiled machine when it comes to war. Interesting enough... a lot of the practices they fought for have been embraced in Canada. They were ahead of their time.

|Hello there! I see you...|
We started at the Museum which has stunning art pieces outside it. You might have seen me trying to negotiate with a giant spider...trying to get him to take a picture with me. We fluttered around and watched them raise the water in the canal to let boats through, and followed along with a tour guide as she explained the history of the buildings. Luv it that Canada has what is called Responsible Government, and that a female judge has success in changing the rules for Women to become a Senator.

Now...about the city! We found it to be extremely easy to navigate whether driving or walking. It was clean and there is art all around you. The people visiting were diverse and our time there went by too quickly. The only downer was the heat....but what can you say? Oh, that the planet is in trouble...yeah, that's it! We really LOVE Quebec City, but Ottawa takes the top spot. It has something for everyone. You can shop local and embrace new experiences as they come across your path. Yay!
