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.
