Arrived in Ottawa the next day and headed for tourist info and then to a motel on the outskirts of town. Possibly the worst one yet, bright green lairy 70s bathroom , cream bricked walls inside, dodgy carpet and the worst smell of damp ever. To top it off Fabien the motel owner was very strange and rang at 7.30 am on a Sunday morning to check if we had been disturbed by the noise the previous night. We hadn`t but the phone call at 7.30 am definitely disturbed us!
On Sunday we headed downtown to Parliament Hill
Later that day Armelle and Becca visited the Cathedral and relaxed in an Irish pub, while kate and i attempted to make it to the museum of Civilisation. After discovering it was far to far to walk we headed to the nearest pub where we ordered perhaps the worst drink i have ever tasted. After requesting a shandy, the waitress promptly brought back our "shondy`s" which were lager and lemon juice!
On Monday we all split off and did our own thing, I sat in on a supreme court case about Aborignial children`s right to education and in the house of commons where two French Mps just ended up yelling at each other
Ottawa has been fun, very different to the other cities so far, with the atmosphere and architecture but a worth while visit. Next stop is Montreal, so we better get practicing our french.
