    North Americans

    Favorite thing: In Canada the first language is English but don't forget that we also speak French. Some do anyways. The culture here in Ottawa and in most of Canad is similar to the one in the USA. We have many things in common with our American neighbours, like the language we speak, the holidays we celebrate and the cars we drive. We also celebrate Halloween. The kids dress up in costumes and go house to house for candy where sometime the owner scares them with decoration of skeletons and carved pumpkins placed at the front porch or in the window. Here is a picture of a Canadian Harley Davisdson superstore. Very American and very Canadian at the same time!

    Fondest memory: If you come to Ottawa in the winter time, prepare for cold, very cold weather.

    Favorite thing: Canada's Capital straddles the border of two provinces (Quebec and Ontario), contains two major cities (Ottawa and Gatineau) and has two official languages (French and English).
