Paris is grey and I'm feeling blue. Rain is pouring outside from a lusterless sky. I want London! I need my London fix!
I miss fast-paced London, I-don't-care-what-you-wear London, I'm-busy London. Sometimes Paris is too heavy for me, and I see myself thinking of the next time I'll be boarding the Eurostar to England.
Oddly enough, I find myself at home when I walk amongst Londoners. In this city, you can feel people are busy and have stuff to do, people to meet, calls to make. As in Paris, people do not walk; they linger, they move slowly as if they did not have a purpose. So frustrating! Parisians definitely do not measure to my North American standards of walking, they're way behind!
