There are people who consider London a majestic city full of traditions, a place still conscious of its imperial past. Others see it as an important centre of underground and pop culture. And they all laugh, thinking that the others are wrong and that the true London is the one only they enjoy.
But London laughs the loudest, offering a solemn changing of the guard here or an open-air macro-concert there so that each person can choose the city he likes the most.
Nobody knows the exact recipe to explain why so many foreigners are in love with London, but it is known to contain a pinch of that characteristic understated British humour, another pinch of monarchist feeling with a touch of irony, a good share of unexpected encounters in Soho and a bit of the inevitable stereotypes: the double-decker buses, the red phone booths, the bowler hats. And once all that has been cooked up, it’s served by a waiter dressed by Vivienne Westwood, while in the background plays an early David Bowie melody.
