Our diggs tonight is a family dorm room at the renovated Ottawa Prison, now a Youth Hostel.
Here the kids are standing in an actual cell. It was one cot wide.
A renovated stairwell that used to be wooden. I'm shooting this photo down the stairwell. Notice the grate? That was for suicide/murder prevention.
Should we leave them here?
Nah, they're hungry. We went into town, only about 4 blocks away and had some fabulous pizza. We walked through the open market. Hanging baskets for 5 bucks!
Gelato was yummy. Of course, kids always pick the messiest flavor, don't they? Notice the "No Loitering" sign?
Did I mention that this place sold Pez? I'm no Pez Geek, but this is the most Pez dispensers I have ever seen in one place!
Let's go back and have a drink in the basement bar.
