The Thames and the Ottawa

London is a much bigger and more historic city than Ottawa, as you can tell from its river.

This is the view I had from Hungerford Bridge (the new footbridge) as I crossed the busy Thames from the south bank to the Embankment underground station, with St. Paul's Cathedral on the skyline and barges going under Waterloo Bridge.

Maybe in another few hundred years, Ottawa will look as developed as this, too. At the moment, it's still a relatively quiet place.

  1. I've seen the Thames and we've both seen our River(s) from the air in all sorts of weather and I think the Ottawa the more spectacular of the two. I wonder why we didn't get the Trois-Rivières moniker too?
