Today I entertained my right brain. I went on a walk about in the National Art Gallery. From my doorstep its about 4km to the museum, plus wandering the halls and galleries for a good 2 hours, and then I plodded my way home. This is the most walking I have done in months and my feet agree. I suppose I could have taken the bus but I felt like walking. It was worth it.
The Art Gallery was super deadly. Although I have little artistic talent, I do have a great appreciation for art and those with talent. I particularly liked the contemporary exhibit and the collection of Inuit sculptures. I would go into more detail except I neglected to take a note pad. Instead I thought it would be a good idea to just take pictures of everything. I was immediately chastised. photographs are not allowed... DUH. I guess I didn't think that one through.
I probably could have spent more time wandering around and I might even go for a return visit before leaving Ottawa. It is strange I have been in Ottawa almost four months now and I have neglected investigate any of the monuments or museums. I suppose that's what locals do though. Now with only one month left in Ottawa I want to commit to a little tourist activity. Maybe I can awaken my brain from its hibernation before returning to school in the fall.
