London — Good morning, what will you have today? It’s another Tuesday morning, which I’ve decided to spend working from a coffee shop in North Greenwich.

Post-yoga second breakfast of champions. Boxcar Coffee, Pearl Street.
Pre-meeting coffee. These are the things I'll miss about Cape Town.
The Third Place

Coffee, cakes, sandwiches and French macaroons
Coffee and books
A latté, a book, and sunset at my favorite coffee shop. The perfect date for 1.

The culture of coffee
Dear Bill, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated the centrepiece you left for me. Love, Dan.
