Ottawa Trip

Sorry for the delay in blogging: I was in Ottawa, Canada for Easter weekend. Here are some pictures I took with my camera there on Sunday.

This picture is of the center block of the Canadian parliament buildings. The area around the parliament buildings is called Parliament Hill, and the center block is the main building where both the House of Commons and Senate chambers are, as well as the offices for the prime minister, and other important leaders.

This is the East Block of the parliament buildings, which is used for offices for members of parliament. There is also a West Block, which looks almost identical.

This picture is the Museum of Civilization, as seen from Parliament Hill. The Museum is just on the other side of the Ottawa River, in Hull, Quebec - a beautiful building.

This building is the National Art Gallery, as seen from Parliament Hill.
