Coffee in stalls today as Sweden was being painted! Perhaps this was Wales - or just on the edge. There's usually a queue out the shop and round the corner; the coffee is so good. But today, for one, enough room to squeeze in. A brief 'Hello' to the two installed and then polite withdrawal into a notebook. Then a hearty discussion about notebooks! Computerised (theirs) and old-fashioned paper (mine). And then splendid chit chat about food - of the Orient (theirs) and fresh flavours (mine). The hare and the tortoise having a jolly good journey together. London - meeting place of the world.
