    Winnipeg - Museum of Human Rights

    October 7, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We are staying in a central position, just a short walk from downtown and all the points of interest. However, getting ourselves onto the correct section of Main Road proved to be a bit of a challenge this morning. Barriers prevent crossing the road at the corner of Portager and Main. Underground pedpaths offer a safer way to cross the intersection. Therein lies the problem. Once underground you have no sense of direction and it is a labyrinth of paths. After 15minutes of failed attempts we rounded the barriers and jaywalked.
    To the train station first. A massive station that sees a very small turnover of passengers and rather resembles a mausoleum. Two tickets to Toronto please - the next leg of our journey.
    From the station we walked towards the Human Rights Museum, investigating the pedestrian bridge first. The bridge is pretty cool and has a restaurant in the middle.
    Onto the Human Rights Museum. A costly endeavour, it is an architectural stunner both inside and out. And as a museum it covers its subject matter with flying colours. It came highly recommended by several people that we have met and we both can understand why.
    Our evening entertainment - The New Pornographers supported by the Ruffians. A great night.

    And so we returned to Canada. After working out our repatriation process at immigration, we reconnected with my brother and his family, as well as my husband's parents. The next morning we picked up Persephone the dog from customs, and began our home turf stay in earnest.Read more
