Ottawa, Canada- they call me mister mellow

Before I got to Canada’s capital I was told it was a boring place, in fact one Canadian described it as “twattawa.” However Ottawa is one of the most unique Capitals I have been to because its so chilled/mellow. In today’s never stopping life the value of this in a city let alone a Capital cannot be underestimated.

Two more reasons that make Ottawa unique for a capital. First some background from a Canadian friend. Ottawa came about as a compromise of English and French Canada joining together, with each side wanting the Capital on their side. Ottawa strides both French and English former territories.

Reason One– So ignoring it ripping off of my own English Parliament- I have never been to one so accessible to its people. Despite Mr. Trump’s views, London is guarded and seeing how accessible this parliament is sums perfectly one of the reasons I love Canada. As a side note they have a free light show on Parliament Hill which is awesome.

Reason two– Ottawa represents a modern Capital. No matter where you are in Ottawa there is green space. This city encapsulates city life blending with nature. Another representation of Canada’s great ability for compromise and inclusion.
