Canary Wharf

M's parents have come for a visit from South Africa, and we took them to see Canary Wharf this morning. It was fun to show them the hustle of bustle of pin-striped men rushing around the futuristic development laced with bridges and canals.

I did this little ink and pencil crayon sketch in my Fabriano Artist's Journal. It measures 2 inches across at the most.

I have a disproportionate pride for the fact that the names of the squares in Canary Wharf are "Canada Square" and "Cabot Square". I somehow associate this with a Canadian connection, either in urban design or investment. Can anyone enlighten me as to why there seems to be such a linguistic connection with my home country?
