Ottawa: Canada celebrates its 150th Birthday
Hello from our capital city. Today, I had a chance to visit Ottawa during its post-Canada Day celebrations. The weather was very nice and the general atmosphere was very friendly and calm.

and the Changing of the Guard:
This very sweet and short trip made me realize how proud I am to be Canadian:
That is all for today. Please join me in ten days on my trip to Sri Lanka. It will be awesome and it will be on this blog. Happy Canada Day everyone!
