Canada: Rideau Canal

Yesterday I got two postcards: my first card from Kyrgyzstan and one from Canada. I wait over two mounths for the card from Canada! The card shows the Rideau Canal. The Rideau Canal was opened in 1832 and thus it is the oldest continously operated canal system in North America. It connects the city of Ottawa at the Ottawa River, Canada's capital, to the city of Kingston on Lake Ontario. Since 2007 it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

With nice Stamps:
Franklin the Turtle (whole set) (issued 11-05-2012)

Thank You very much Jess!
