I remember when I arrived in Ottawa, only a couple of years ago, that I found the southern side of the Centretown part of Bank Street to be pretty dingy looking. It has taken me until now to realize how much that has changed. New condos, completely renovated blocks of businesses including the “new” Vistek, and a number of new restaurants and pubs have completely changed the face of this area. I have to say I am pretty impressed. Now if only this could happen to other areas of town…   [google_map address=’323′ coordinates=’45.410337,-75.692556′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Really? The Ottawa Chinese Embassy is showcasing a lot of colours and lights these days. As we leave January behind and enter February, I find it entertaining to see how this grand building is sporting lights from two completely different cultures: Christmas lights at the front door and Chinese lanterns along the side. For those that didn’t know, the presence of these lanterns means only one thing, Chinese New Year is just around the corner, on February 10 to be exact. Are you ready for the year of Snake?       [google_map address=’208′ coordinates=’45.436067,-75.684568′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]
