Ottawa

A journal entry from: World Tour 2008

I havent had any time to write diaries, so I just want to update the map =)

But in Ottawa it was very beautiful, its the capital of Canada and they speak english and french there. Or actually they speak french in Gatineau and english in Ottawa, two different cities but actually they are just on two sides of a river.

  My couchsurfing-host (www.couchsurfing.com) was great and she showed me the nice places in Ottawa, like the big park with a great view over the region. On my own I went to a cool museum in a big building without corners (means bad luck in indian culture). And inside they had recreated an old canadian town at the time of the settlement, but also an old indian village. I also saw the semifinals in euro footbal cup in an irish bar. It was very nice to feel a bit of european culture over here =)

From Ottawa I got a free ride with a couchsurfer to Montreal. And I was also picked up at the airport in Ottawa by my couchsurfing host!
