A travel journal....a diary....a place to kick back a bit. Laughter and poignancy are correct here. Rants are, well, for my OTHER blog.

Remembrance Day 2008
A few years ago, people started leaving their poppies on the tomb of the unknown soldier. I don't know why...it was just spontaneous. Mine is somewhere there...in the middle. Unknown.
There was a very well mannered crush to get there. In the background you can see the houses of parliament.
And this was Elgin Street, with all the vip cars and fancy downtown buildings. To the left is the famous "Sparks Street", a pedestrian only street. In the background you can see the east block of the parliament buildings. I always see a face in the building!
