March is one of my favourite months, and not just because I was born in this month. I like March because it is when we begin to see sure evidence that the thaw is on, that winter is on its way out, that we will soon be shedding our extra layers of clothing.
But I don't like spring. It's my least-favourite season. It's slushy, the earth smells as it wakes up. All of the dog crap on the walkways thaws and shows us how owners haven't been cleaning up after their pets. I actually prefer winter to spring. And so, for now, I'll hang onto the last days of winter.
And as we get close to saying goodbye to this season, I present the final Where In Ottawa contest of the 2011–2012 winter.
I took this photo a couple of months ago, and for anyone who follows my Flickr photostream, you've seen this picture before. And once, at Thursday Pints, I showed it to some of the folks, giving them five seconds to identify the location. None did it.
Think you can? Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!
The first person to correctly identify this location will win a PDF copy of my book, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary. You must leave your guess as a comment in this blog post; no guesses through Twitter, by e-mail, or as a comment in another post will count.
