In June 2007, UNESCO des­ig­nated the Rideau Canal, a land­mark in Ottawa, a World Her­itage Site, cit­ing it as “the best pre­served canal in North Amer­ica from the great canal-building era of the early 19th cen­tury to remain oper­a­tional along its orig­i­nal line with most of its orig­i­nal struc­tures intact.

So we did what Cana­di­ans do best in the sum­mer: we celebrated.

  1. @itelli — Thank you!

    @bluefish — Same as I rarely go to Montréal ;-)

    @Annie — Canada is really into her­itage, yet, the coun­try looks so young for a Euro­pean like me!

    @beaverboosh — I haven’t seen any Kiwi, but I will look for one next time. I want my own weird expe­ri­ence by Rideau!

    @Ulquiorra — No, not really. Just water pour­ing out of the locks.

    @RennyBA — Thanks for the award! I love these locks, they are right down­town and they are a great place to hang out at. I’ll read your post about your locks and canal!

    @DianeCA — Fas­ci­nat­ing, isn’t it!

    @kyh — I did watch and I’m still watch­ing today. I’m going to Bejing next week, I’m so excited!

    @Seraphine — Bag­pipe is obvi­ously a big part of Chi­nese cul­ture! Con­fu­cius said “take a bag, take a pipe, and make a bag­pipe”. His advice is still fol­lowed today :lol:

    @Scarlet — This is my sec­ond fire­work this sum­mer and I must say I did enjoy.
