Into the Prime Minister`s Office...
Well, yesterday was a cool day, by any standards. It started with a free lunch because the new pages are in training, and get free meals every day. Sometime around dinner, a man came in with a box of St. Hubert chicken for us. It turns out that the pages had dinner at Parliament, and that we got their left over dinners as well. The pages are definately better taken care of than the guides!
Just after I finished my last tour, and sat down in the guide lounge there was a call on the guide phone. We were all asked to come out to the guide kiosk, immediately. We got out there, and one of the constables had decided to take us to the Prime Minister`s Office, since it`s the end of the summer and we`ll be going home soon. So, I quickly ran to get my cambera (duh!).
Needless to say, we all took photos of ourselves in the Prime Minister`s desk, and browsed his bookshelf. We then went into the room where the Cabinet meets, and took a look around there as well. Needless to say, it was cool. It`s amazing to think of the decisions that have been made in those rooms.
After work, I headed to the Château Laurier with Meena, Sarah, and Natalie (other guides) for some drinks and desserts. The Château is the most expensive hotel in Ottawa, right beside Parliament. I had a capuccino, and then we had a chocolate fondu.
After Château Laurier, we headed to the Urban Well where we met up with some of the other guides. Because we`re all done very soon, there`s an event almost every night.
