 IV. Time to Read

Read a part of a traveller’s diary and choose the right answers to the questions.

15 May, Ottawa

“I’m in the middle,

I’m between...

I mean, I’m in the middle of sightseeing in Ontario, Canada’s second largest province. As it borders on four of the five Great Lakes. It’s only natural that I have visited the spectacular Niagara Falls, a true magnet for tourists. I found out that this famous waterfall actually consists of two parts - The American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls, and they are separated by Goat Island. Both the US and Canada have cities called Niagara Falls, and they are joined by Rainbow Bridge. It was such a picturesque view that it really took my breath away.

Now I’m on my way to Ottawa, Canada’s capital city which is also in Ontario. By the way, across the Ottawa River is its twin city, Hull, in the province of Quebec. I’m looking forward to seeing the Parliament Buildings. “Prince of Wales (Edward VII) laid the first stone of the Center Block in the 19thcentury, then the East and West blocks were added. The Center Block includes the House of Commons, the Senate Chamber, the Peace Tower and offices of Members of Parliament”, my guide book says.

I think I can already see the Peace Tower at a distance. It rises above the Parliament Buildings. It has an observation area, from which I’ll enjoy the most marvellous view of the whole city. The only pity is that it isn’t July or August now, because in those summer months the Guard performs a daily changing-the-guard ceremony in front of the Peace Tower. But never mind. There is more than enough to see in Ottawa as it is...
