Royal Exchange Grand Café, London

De fiecare data cand vizitez Londra, imi place sa descopar cel putin un loc nou si desigur nici aceasta vizita nu s-a lasat mai prejos. Site-urile de specialitate sunt un loc bun pentru a ne inspira, insa recomandarile prietenilor pot fi, de cele mai multe ori, mult mai inspirate. Asa am ajuns in districtul Bank, zona unde cladirile vechi se pierd printre zgarie nori, unde turistii sunt mai putini, iar oamenii de afaceri pun monopol pe strazile aglomerate. Cladirea: Bank of England (Banca Angliei), banca centrala a Regatului.

A coffee in London

I have been in London many times and each time I felt like home. Each time I discover new places, hidden places and yet every time I have a ritual that I gladly respect. A route.

After a few quiet moments to one of the tables, I start slowly on Tower Bridge among tourists concerned by selfies and landscape. I pass between them remembering my first ride on that bridge and I turn to City Hall. I stop on the Potters Fields Park, where I spend the most of the time with lost thoughts and flavor of coffee with me. In all the excitement around, is just me, London, coffee and music in headphones. My favorite place worldwide. by E.
