I was wondering whether there were more stories about the place that could be told.
I mentioned that there is a big difference in atmosphere between the north and the south part
of the place. The north side is the appealing side to sit; it is clean and spherical with benches and telephone
booths. The south side is quite dirty, there are a lot of bins with a lot of rubbish around it; most benches are located between the bins. Next to that you have the idea of standing in a private space, because of the
boards and fences surrounding this part of the place. The sunshine never reaches this side.
