    The welcome scent of coffee wafts through the air, calling to my weary legs to come take a rest. A metallic table reflects the sun, almost blinding me for a second. As I take a seat, I am surrounded by mountains of plastic and paper bags. The sun has heated the chair and it feels comforting and warm. I look around for a waitress for taking my order.

    Birds swoop in from every direction, hoping for a stray crumb to feast on. The pavements are covered with squabbling, pecking pigeons. They fight over the smallest speck of what may, or may not even be food. Children run at them, squealing with pleasure as they scramble off into the air, leaving their treasure behind.

    The noise from the traffic invades my thoughts. Lorries making deliveries, clattering and banging as the drivers empty their cargo without a care. The heavy smell of exhaust fumes fills my nostrils and I long to inhale the sweet aroma of my coffee. The street seems to be getting busier. More people, carrying more bags, spending more money. The café in comparison seems as calm as the child in deep slumber. We patiently sit and wait for our orders, courteously nodding at each other, if we happen to catch someone’s eye. Empty tables are strewn with cups and packaging. Coffee or tea spilt on the gleaming metallic surface degrades the look of the café. My coffee arrives and everything else disappears. Just me, my thoughts and my beautiful Choco latte.
