I spent most of the day in one park or another, putting off the time when this would no longer be possible. It occurred to me that one could spend an entire holiday in Hyde Park, emerging perhaps for lunch, only to relinquish the crowded streets gratefully for a long uninterrupted afternoon which would, eventually, make some sense of going home.
