Friday - Ottawa City

On Friday Bron and Rob went into the central city and wandered around looking at the beautiful old government buildings, shopping and looking at the markets.

We tried a Beaver Tail, which is like a flat donut covered in cinnamon sugar. Very yummy.

As cities go Ottawa is very nice. It is very green and pleasant at this time of year with lots of trees and park areas. Public transport is great with an excellent bus service, cheap and very fast. They have buses only roads leading out of the city to the suburbs. The population of Ottwa is about 750,000 so its smaller than Auckland.

Tomorrow we head off to Little Cedar Lake for a week, so we won't have Internet access. So don't expect any more posts for a week.
