The days are finally getting longer. It is nice to wake up and see that, for once, it is not pitch-dark.
Don't get me wrong, it is not warm just yet. Far from it. That said, it is starting to feel like we are finally getting out of hibernation. In short, it is time to enjoy London a bit more, and it feels nice.
Honestly, what's not to like about London? London is so international that I sometimes wonder whether it is not a small country with its own set of rules. Dozens of different nationalities live and work over here. If you fancy a different type of cuisine, London has it for you. Indonesian, Korean or Lebanese? Not a problem. There is something different to eat at every corner of the streets of London, if you are adventurous enough. I think that I will have sushis for lunch today.
Encouraged by the bright weather, I decided to venture to Holland Park. You have to understand that I am coming from a warm(er) country and I was not so sure that my idea was that great, because it remains quite cold.
Thanks to http://www.citybridgetrust.org.uk, I found out that there was a Japanese garden in Holland Park. I have been living over here for the best part of 9 years and I didn't know.
I was not disappointed. It was simply lovely.
Actually, it felt like I was traveling to Japan while staying in the middle of London. It was a bit like one of these magical moments that seem to happen in a dream. Everything was perfect. I really would have liked to stay a bit longer.
Shame I had to go back to my hectic life after this...
