: . The Sun Never Sets... :

"The [West London] streets themselves look as they’d always done; imperially snug and solid. On a sunny morning, you could easily believe that nothing essential had changed among these avenues of plane trees and tall, white stucco mansions. Even now, there are nannies to be seen—solemn Filipino women, who pushed their pramloads as if they were guarding a reliquary of holy bones in religious procession."
--Jonathan Raban, from “Sea-Room” in The Granta Book of Travel
