The Other Direction

So we rode the riverboat in the opposite direction this time up river to Kew. And then rode it back again. Nice relaxing day trip (just us and the tourists). Its sometimes good to try to see your own city from the eyes of tourists or from an unusual perspective. Different view of London altogether.

The journey upriver is very different from the one that goes to Greenwich - while the Greenwich trip goes through the city, financial and business districts, this journey passes a lot more industry, expensive apartment developments and then parts of London that look like small villages with country-style pubs. And when you get off at Kew, you're still very much in London when you walk off the riverbank.
