I have always dreamt about spending a night in London, just wandering around and enjoying the quietness that night brings. And then, around 2 am go for full English breakfast in Smithfield Market. Perhaps one day I will convince my partner Martin that it is a really great idea. So far I haven’t been very successful. I can’t say I blame him though, I admit it is somewhat crazy. But I think that craziness is one of the spices of life.
London is full of fascinating buildings. Not far from Smithfield Market there is an Art Deco residential building. Built in 1936 Florin Court features an impressive curved façade with projecting wings, a roof garden, setbacks on the ninth and tenth floors and a basement swimming pool. It became the fictional residence of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, known as Whitehaven Mansions.
