This one reminds me of the King's Library in the British Museum. It is possibly my favourite place in the world. I love how you can stop everything there; you can just sit down, watch and listen. I remember the lighting, the gilded railings high up over my head, the floor creaking, the Asian tourists staring curiously at me just as if they had simply forgotten that perhaps that girl on that bench is not a part of the exhibition.
