"A livable city" Ottawa by Martman

I have been to Ottawa twice. I loved the city both times. I would gladly visit a third time! Though I loved my two visits, I never had a chance to see the city propertly. My first time was for a specific purpose leaving little time for sight-seeing. The second time was for 4 days. Unfortunately I had a foot injury then and could not make the most of it. This is somewhat frustrating as I really loved the city. I did manage to limp the tour of the Houses of Parliament. I also managed to limp my way onto a boat for a ride through the Rideau canal!
Moral of the story: Try avoid having Plantar Faciitis. It sure impacts a holiday! I should not not complain though. There are plenty people with worse problems.
Regarding my picture, you might say :
Seeing the Parliament Buildings is nothing new.
I have a very good response:
Yes, but how often have you seen a picture of the Parliament that is off-centre and parts of the building are not visible?
You see, so my picture is unique!
On a more serious note, I once had some relatives visit here. They toured a few cities. They said that should they ever live in Canada, they would choose the city Ottawa!
There is often demonstrations by the Pariliament buildings. If I remember correctly, these were Kurds doing a hunger strike. I cannot remember exactly when I took this picture, but estimate about 1995.
Once you are in the area anyway, you may as well go over the bridge into Hull, Quebec. Suddenly everyone is speaking... more travel advice
I remember taking a tour of the Houses of Parliament. It really was fascinating to look around. more travel advice
