Once upon a time, I was a contestant of a team in an inter-scholastic Q&A championship. When we were asked “where’s the capital of Canada?”, everyone was silent – except me know so well that it was O-t-t-a-w-a.
Ottawa is one of my favorite cities in the world (for obvious reasons). My most memorable experience was crossing the mystical, black Ottawa river on the Pont Alexandra during Christmas; and both sides of the bank covered with thick, white snow. What a B&W image.
The picture was me standing in front of the parliament more than 10 years ago. There I was, cutesy enough to give a thumbs up or V for victory for photo takings.
