As you may now, the city of Ottawa is the capital of Canada. Situated in the province of Ontario, it is a small but vital place full of joy, culture and manners. One of its most pleasant characteristics is the cleanliness and care off which its streets and buildings show. But, certainly, the Canadian spirit floods over Ottawa, mixing that little bit of rhythm with the stillness, just in the frontier between British and French territories.
