A visit to Marlowe and Dima in Ottawa, Canada


You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Downtown Ottawa, Ontario, 2004

The Parliament buildings in Canada's capital city, Ottawa, Ontario, home also of Carleton University, where young Marlowe Peck is beginning her second year. She and Dima live in nearby Nepean.

Canadian dignitaries

Hull across the river in Québec --

Sorry -- Gatineau across the river in Québec. The city's name was changed in 2002, or rather Hull got sucked into nearby Gatineau in some DeLay sort of political rearrangement.

A different kind of monumental architecture -- the US embassy with its distinctively welcoming look.

The "Famous Five" suffragette sculpture by Barbara Paterson (2000), celebrating the Persons case of 1929, when Canada recognized that women were included in the constitutional phrase "persons". The suffragette in the orange shirt is modern and not part of the presentation.

-- Are you coming, or not?

The National Gallery of Canada, excellent. Thin but profound on 17th century Dutch masters, so the rest is gravy.

Ne manquez pas!
