“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”
– Samuel Johnson (notable scholar)
On September 30th, Financial Times published a supplement about London and the World. It is a highly-readable set of texts about the unofficial capital of globalisation.
As one of the authors write in an article “Its restaurants, its skyline, its football clubs, its way of earning a living – almost every aspect of London life has been shaken up by outsiders. New York is an American city with a global dimension. London is a global city that happens to be appended to Britain.”
London has a mystery and allure that never wanes, which it exercises like a fascination that pulls people back again and again, no matter if they are tourists, business visitors or once residents.
