The Olympic Torch Relay In Ottawa (1/2)

Fun day. I just wished it hadn’t been – 10C. A bit too cold to spend 6 hours outside taking pictures, but it worthed it.

Today, the Olympic Torch of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics arrived in Ottawa and it traveled all over the city. I walked to Bank Street and waited patiently with the next torch bearer for the current bearer to arrive.

It happened very fast. A few minutes beforehand, organizers made sure the torch was working fine. Passersby cleared the road and the female torch bearer arrived, jogging. Both torches touched briefly and the second one lit up instantly. A last smile, and the guy jogged away.

Much more happened later, at the Parliament Hill Party (to be continued…).
