Where In Ottawa: The January Edition

Happy New Year!

I hope that you enjoyed yourselves over the holidays and that you found time to rest, relax, and spend time with friends and loved ones. It's a new year, and I wish you all peace and prosperity in 2012. And let's hope that the Mayans got it wrong!

It's also the beginning of a new month, which means another round of Where In Ottawa? I had so much fun stumping you in December that I hope I can do it again. Are you ready? Here is this month's photo:

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

The first person who correctly identifies this location will win a PDF copy of my novel, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary.

Already have a copy of my novel? You can still play: if you won this contest before November 2011, I will send you a new copy of the final version of the book, which will hit bookstores in the next couple of months. Still in PDF format, this version has a couple of early flashbacks, a different ending, and is one minor character shy from the original.

And you'll also have bragging rights. That's got to be worth something: street cred, perhaps?

Get going, and remember: to win, you must leave your answer in the comments section of this post. No tweets, no e-mail. Starting tomorrow, I will start listing clues in the top-right corner of my blog, right above the photo of me. I'll also post the clues on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

Good luck!


  1. I'm not sure what the building is called, but it's located right on the corner of Waller and Nicholas. Picture is of the North wall.

  2. Couldn't tell you the name of it, either, but I do know that it also used to be a law office.

  3. Congratulations, David! You have correctly identified this location. For the record, it's called Odell House.

    More to come...
