Ottawa - Planes, Trains & Automobiles

We arrived in Ottawa at our first destination, The Canada Science & Technology Museum.  We explored the facility, pushed buttons, pulled knobs and cranked a few handles.  The kids were rewarded with the appropriate bells, whistles and lights.  They had a fun afternoon absorbing information from  a very enthuastic 'geeky' techno science space engineer (aka Mr. Osmar's father, brother, uncle or other familial relative).  The children were particulary impressed with the large telescope in the on-site observatory.  Too bad it was still daylight.
