Beautiful buildings - Ottawa and Gatineau's galleries

Ottawa is a really very pretty city - I loved wandering around - particularly by the river looking up at Parliament Hill.  It also has some fantastic galleries...I made it to one!  The National Gallery of Canada is really amazing.  I loved the building and was really impressed with the art inside.  I especially loved the work of Tom Thomson and the group of seven - gave me something to look forward to in terms of getting out of the cities and checking out the landscapes ;o)

I also ventured over the bridge to Gatineau - back to Quebec!  I loved wandering around museum of Canadian Civilisation.  It was far too sunshiney to actually go in it but I thought the building was really beautiful.
