Although scenic from the top of parliament, it is just another bridge from one side of a river to the other. In this case, it connects the Quebec side with the Ontario side of Ottawa.

I like bridges. Mainly because you can cross water without dyeing or getting your feet wet. Can see from most areas of downtown.
