A wee peak at Winnipeg

On the way back from the big T we were fortunate to have a brief stop in Winnipeg.
Winnipeg - looks welcoming from the air.
 With only a few hours to spare we did have a delicious lunch at the Fork Markets; we checked out the historic confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers; had a peek at the soon to open Canadian Museum for Human Rights; and saw the Manitoba Legislative building - with the hardy 'Occupy Memorial Provincial Park' tent dwellers opposite.
Almost the White House.

Colourful - but do they keep out the cold and RCMP!!

Prop from the latest Dr Who episode.

Mr Gandhi on his way to the Canadian  Museum for Human Rights.

A unique map of the Red River - all we need now is a boat.
Just a mere morsel of Manitoba. Hopefully we will return one day to enjoy the whole banquet.
