Family week-end 2
On Saturday we planned to walk around Ottawa as real tourists, taking pictures of everything, and then go to the Pool-barbecue-party at Claudia's house, in Hull/Gatineau (picture in previous post, with the Canadian flag).
During the morning we went to Parliament Hill again, and on the way we could see a car with a Palestinian flag. The reason (which we discovered later on) was that there was a peaceful manifestation in front of Parliament Hill and the Prime Minister Office to ask him to take action with what is happening in Lebanon. Lots of Canadians are originally from Lebanon (they say that more than 50.000 Canadians were in Lebanon at the moment of the beginning of the conflict). So it is a really hot issue over here.
In the afternoon we went for a barbecue with friends, where Francesco met for the first time with many of the AIESEC people from Ottawa University and Carleton. :)
