....after five days in London I leave with very mixed feelings: I have seen beautiful friends every single day, I went to many of " our" places, the sky over London was blue all the time, the Londoners were as friendly as ever, scones and latte fantastic as always, our flat cozy and warm.....and still I dont know how the relationship between London and me will develop: if we- London and I- had a status on Facebook, it would now change into " it's complicated".
Because there is nobody who walks in "short-short-long-steps" on the pavement along the Themse and doesnt care if it looks ridiculous.Believe me I tried it on my own.I still did look ridiculous but it was no fun at all!
There is nobody who talks to all the dogs in the park.(...funny how you miss things that actually sometimes went on your nerves!)
And nobody who doesnt want to go into shops but comes out of each one of them with some new t-shirts...
And you know what? I actually didnt meet anybody as jolly, friendly and sunny as you.
So...what is the point of coming back here?
Ahhhhh yes....I remember now....I will be back shortly to revisit all the banks who didnt let me open my bank account! And- my banking friends-I will have all the gaz bills of the universe with me!!See you soon!
