Happy birthday Canada… from London!
That’s right: from France, we took the Eurostar (more on that later) and are now in London for a few days. And this afternoon, we stumbled upon the Canada Day celebrations in London, in Trafalgar Square — a huge (unexpected) party!
We had a good laugh when we noticed there were even a Tim Hortons on-site for the occasion, as well as a poutine stall (£5 though!) and a bunch of Canadian flags. It felt like Parliament Hill, just noisier. For some reason, techno music was the music of choice — what, no Tragically Hip, the perfect Canadian band? Oh right, they are in Ottawa, playing at the BluesFest.
