Ottawa, Canada. My CS host Dmitri took me for a walk down the shore of the Ottawa river on the Quebec side this morning to check out this abandoned railway and bridge and to try and spot a beaver. We didn’t see a beaver unfortunately, but we did find a tree which had quite obviously been gnawed on by an eager beaver near the rivers edge.

Afterwards I walked all the way back to Parliament house to do a free tour. Then I spent the rest of the day wandering around Ottawa until my feet almost bled before getting a ride share back to Montreal. Tonight is my last night in Canada on Brae’s couch so I had to force him to smoke my last Cuban cigar with me or risk losing it at the USA border. He hated it.
