By grey rat snake
One or two groups had to get up around 6:30 this morning to finish off the last bit of the wetland assessment. We still managed to finish our breakfast promptly and meet outside of QUBS just past 8:00am. Today is the last day of our two week field course. Some students bought QUBS t-shirts as souvenirs, and took photos with the staff and people at the station. We took two big white vans, along with Steve’s car to go visit Canada’s capital, Ottawa!

After our two hour drive, we were very fortunate to be able to visit the collection that is not open to the public at the Canadian Museum of Nature. The collection contains over 10 million specimens that were gathered for more than 150 years, and covering four billion years of history. We were quickly introduced to Roger, who along with his lovely coworkers showed us the Earth Sciences, Botany, Vertebrates, and Invertebrates collections at the museum. In the invertebrate collection, we saw specimens of mollusks, parasites, annelids, and other general invertebrates. Moreover, the National Herbarium of the Canadian Museum of Nature houses numerous specimens. In particular, the Vascular Plant Collection is the largest in Canada. In the vertebrate collection, we saw some skeletons of amphibians and reptiles, some bird specimens and eggs, and many mammal skins, pelts, mounts, and skeletons.

After our picnic lunch at a local park, we headed to downtown Ottawa! Here, the area was dominated by government buildings like Parliament Hill and the Supreme Court. Most of the other buildings here are office towers, hotels, and condominiums. We also visited the Rideau Centre and the Byward Market which was just across the street. It was a fun afternoon, and we got a good feel of the commercial and economic centre of the city.

Our farewell dinner was arranged at the Mongolia Hotpot. It was the first time for some of our Canadian students, and our Chinese students were also happy to have food from our homeland. This was our last supper together and depressing for many of us. We took many group photos in front of our big white van after dinner and said goodbye to Ottawa. Fortunately, we still get the evening and morning to be together until our goodbyes to the Canadian students.

明早我们即将离开我们待了半月的station,今天告别的氛围已经弥漫开来,看着相处了这么久的小女孩一家、Frank、Mark,不知不觉地觉得心酸,觉得舍不得,因而我们找他们合影留念,希望把在这里的一幕幕留在心里,带回中国。

之后我们因为Steve的关系,我们得以进入加拿大自然博物馆研究所,博物馆进了不少,可博物馆背后的秘密今天是第一次见。作为一座历史悠久的博物馆,它有着1820年的馆藏,有着加拿大几乎全部植物种类标本和数以万计的化石、动物标本。Roger和他的同事们在这儿保存、研究未被展出的珍奇展品,他向我们展示了,世界首见的恐龙化石,已经灭绝的动物,植物标本制作过程,基因分析技术,这些不是我们能在一所普通的博物馆,随意看看所能见识到的。

草坪野餐后,我们来到渥太华市中心,在国会大厦外的不灭火炬前留影,并解散开始下午的自由活动。我们不太想去购物,想去一些渥太华市中心有特色的景点,因而在市中心转了一圈,经过了市场、百货大楼、大运河,第一感觉是渥太华的一些建筑十分古典,有许多欧式古堡(虽然历史并不悠久,大多是仿法国、英国建造的,国会、法院、政府都是这样),接下来觉得他们的人好少,市中心商业街冷冷清清,一问下来渥太华总人口才大约70万,也就是个中国中等城市水平,所以我们一行十来人在这里已经算是浩浩荡荡了。还有一点就是中加的差异了,小到消防栓的颜色大到市政各种设施(如残疾人设施),无一不让我们感到新奇。

我们的晚饭是在小肥羊吃的,这让我大跌眼镜、瞠目结舌,从看到店内外占主要地位的中文到那些翻译诡异的菜肴,让我无法分辨这是在中国的餐厅还是加拿大的。这么多天以来我们都在适应加拿大的菜肴,宇翔为了改善伙食,也为了让加拿大同学们提前适应中国,因而选在这里晚餐。这是我们和Steve、Cate的最后一顿晚饭,我们都格外珍惜,大家开心地聊着不知不觉到了8点多,不得不回去睡觉了,为了明天的最后收拾和出发,大家必须养足精神。Station,我们即将离开了,谢谢你留给我了这么多美妙回忆,有缘再见。

最后祝留在渥太华的“白富美”ZhuDi一路顺风,开开心心.
