Aviation

Went to see Canada Aviation and Space Museum. I was quite surprised to see how large these planes were. Especially the bomber(2nd photo), I wouldn't want to see that in the air in this time or ever.
Sir Charles was fascinated by P40 but I don't know the difference from others.... I was more fascinated by the WWI planes, the construction were more interesting.

You can enjoy riding the vintage flight experience over the Capital. I was interested but unfortunately I'm timid by my motion sickness so I had to pass on that....

caravaggio's painting

So my highlight of this trip was to see Caravaggio's paintings. There were also other paintings of Caravaggio followers who wanted to paint the way Caravaggio did. The followers weren't as impressive as Caravaggio's, but I got to see his "St. John the Baptist" with my own eyes. I really wished they had more of his work.

Unfortunately, the gallery didn't accept photos so I wasn't able to take any of the Caravaggio's work! So I only had one option to take the architecture around me...

my ottawa trip

I had a little road trip with Sir Charles to see "Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome" in Ottawa. We arrived in the evening, walked around at the night time Parliament.
Last time visiting Ottawa was my Gr. 8 graduation school trip. I only remember seeing the Parliament and shopping at a mall that I would assume was Rideau Centre and dropping by to Hersey's Factory.

When we got to the Parliament, there was a show going on of a team named Mosaika, a sound and light show. They used projector light(or some kind) and used Parliament building as projector screen. It was showing the visual images of a culture of Canada.

Ottawa is a nice quite city. It's not too packed like Toronto where it's packed with people and building in tight space.

More photos of the trip to come!
