Easter Monday in Bielefeld, Germany, was sunny and warm. Why Bielefeld? My daughter and her family with three kids live there. It is a little bit too far to see each other really often this is why Easter was good reason to go there. It was not the first visit of that city. There are many familiar things there but every single visit still a lot of hidden places and undiscovered objects. The most popular and loved place is Old Town in the center. All of it is a huge pedestrian area. Tourists and local people just walking around, smiling, laughing, talking, siting in cafe and restaurants with friends and families, and celebrate the Life. Watch that difficult to imaging why somewhere in the world so many unhappy people and trouble, sorrow and grief. Life is too short to make it miserable. Spring is in full power in Bielefeld. There are a lot of flowers; all the trees and bushes are dressed with young and tender leaves. Breeze stirs the air. Sun is playing on the shivering leaves and sending its rays in the eyes. People squint but do not hide from the sun. They enjoy warm and gentle spring light. Peace and Love reign in the city.
Modern Toronto is a typical metropolis and it is difficult to know Canada through it. There are certainly some unique features that distinguish Toronto from other large cities in the world, but the spirit of Canada located in small towns.
Peterborough is one of those places. Cute and charming town situated on the banks of Otonabee River. There are two of the most distinctive and remarkable places it the town –
Lift Lock and Del Crary Park.
Otonabee River is part of the Trent-Severn Waterway, providing a link from Lake Ontario to Lake Huron. Also, Trent Canal runs through the very eastern portion of the city and is home to the Peterborough Lift Lock the largest and highest hydraulic boat lift in the world (65 feet or 19.8 meters).
