Sometimes being a Londoner you want a walk, but actually I also like the urban walks through the city you can do.
Yesterday I walked through the squares of Islington, watching people.
(Then I went to the sales but that is another story).
Iain Sinclair writes about walking through the city as does de Certeau.
You can look at things with a different eye, and view the world as someone both part of and yet not part of the landscape.
One of the things I like about going to new places is walking through them, discovering the landscape.
