Ottawa 2010 Day 3: Rideau Hall, Museum of Civilization

Thankfully this only took a month to post all my photos from the last trip (as opposed to Japan which took 7 months) ;)

This is the last set of Ottawa pics, what an awesome time. This was from my last major wandering-around day, and I had a great time checking out Sussex Drive, Rideau Hall and the Museum of Civilization.

Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica




I'd never seen 24 Sussex Drive (the Prime Minister's Residence). Now living in 'merica, I assumed that it would be HUGE and you could probably take a tour, a.l.a The White House. Turns out, in very true Canadian understated-ness, the Prime Minister's Residence is LITERALLY the Prime Minister's Residence. There was a cute stray cat wandering around which the security guard was petting. So funny. The best part - there was a trampoline in the front yard for his kids to jump on!!

Beautiful gardens at Rideau Hall, office of the Governor General of Canada

Awesome canoes

There was a history of Canada exhibit and they had a replica printing place with some Winnipeg Jewish Community prints
