Not sure if there are any others like them in Ottawa or even in Canada for that matter.   [google_map address=’168′ coordinates=’45.420549,-75.701328′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Of course, for those of you who came here looking to see a normal looking photo of the Rink of Dreams, I did take post two normal […]

Seems like everyone forgets the Christmas spirit on these magical stairways! Anyways, I am […]
