A Day in Ottawa

On Friday we checked into a Camp ground near Ottawa. I took a cabin again. What a surprise – there was only beds for five people, a table, five chairs, a fridge and a microwave. No heating, no toilet or bathroom, no kitchen, no dishes, no blankets. It was a cold night, around zero centigrades, 32°F.

The weather forcast for the next day was promising and so we decided to do sightseeing in Downtown Ottawa. We booked an Uber ride – our first Uber experience. Registering outside the home country is a challenge, but we managed to overcome the hurdles. The WiFi was instable, so it took quite a while to manage our order.

The pickup next morning was in time, the ride to the center fast and soon we left the car in front of the parliament.

 

 

Our tour started from the parliament clockwise to Pont du Portage into Gatineau in Quebec, on thie other side of the river Ottawa, and along the river to Alexandra Bridge back to  Ottawa. It was impressive to see the parliament hill from different sides.

Another remarkable attraction is the seven phase watergate stairway vrom river Ottava up to Rideau Canal.
