Today the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, came to Canada and visited Paul Martin. Guess who was working on the Hill? Yup, I was working on the front when his 15 car motorcade rolled in. Let`s just say it was rather impressive! Abbas` limo rolled right up under the Peace Tower, where he jumped out of the limo, and was followed by his security, as well as a lot of aides and other memebers of his staff.
I thought that security would be a bit annoyed with the guides who were working outside, but they were really nice to us before and during his visit (then my shift ended, so I didn`t see him leave).
I also saw a groundhog on the grass in front of the building -I`ve never seen a groundhog before, so I thought it was cool.
