In August, the people on the street are a mix of natives getting lunch or coffee and tourists shopping and taking in a sight or two. There’s no measurement of culture consumed to justify expenditures, but maybe there should be: two hours in a museum equals a piece of clothing; three hours on the Circle Line equals a pair of shoes. If rain starts coming down during an outdoor activity…JACKPOT! Spend even more on the shoes!
