Who are we
We are a family of 3 who took a break from our routine. Usually we live in Scotland but February to the end of July 2011 we were on the road in North America for 6 months. We are Mark (also known as Dad), Rachel (also known as Mum... and a whole bunch of other names... my usual at-home blog is here) and little h (10/11 years of age during the trip).

As promised here is a wee slideshow of pics in and around the The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. You're not allowed to take pictures of the paintings and work inside but we did get more than a few photos of the fab/monstrous Louise Bourgeois piece "Maman" that stands just outside the front entrance (photos of that as we went in and then back out a few hours later...) and the building itself is really striking and bold. Inside we looked mainly at the Canadian art section but I did pop round the European section on the upper floor too (who can resist a quick van Gogh moment, a glimpse of Klimt... not I...).
