We are now in Ottawa after travelling by train from Toronto which was all fine, managed to find the bus from the station and have now spent the night banged up in Ottawa Jail! Block 6 Cell 6. Yes ok its a hostel now but the rooms are all the original cells and you sleep in bunks. It's quite an amazing place and slept better than I did in Toronto in the supposed hostel there. Which turned out to be a room in a chinese boarding house, we were right next to the bathroom and all night long people were in and out, the bed was as hard as a board and made your bones ache!
Today we are staying at the Barefoot Hostel (named because you cant wear shoes!) it is really lovely but it is dorms! So far we havent got anyone else in our room so fingers crossed. There is an amazing shower with free soap, shampoo etc nice one.
We spent the day sight seeing and it really is a lovely city with lots of canals, rivers and a lovely market area - with little shops, cafes and lots of street theatre - so we
may have missed the Riverside Festival but at least we have seen some of the acts!! We also had a bit of rain which was warm and not on the scale of the uk I gather.
Tommorow we are travelling to Quebec.............
