Parliament Hill, we stand on guard for thee.......

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Parliament in Ottawa was build around 1927, in more or less Gottic style. Original burned in 1916. It was just renovated. RCMP was investigating (2011) the $9-million contract for Parliament Hill renovation (bribes).

BUT...It really looks good, even small details, bricks and stones are cleaned, mortar fixed. Bribes well spent! ;-)

Yes! Je l'ai visité en 1994!

Bonjour de France. Jean.

Tomros on February 29, 2012

Thanks Jean for your extended visit. Hope you visited in the spring or summer, because winter visit is less enjoyable because of the snow and cold!

There is nothing secret here! There are tours in the Parliament Building everyday!

The US Embassy is just around the corner from here, but they looked at me suspiciously, when I photographed there.
