the tower of london

The tower of London is near Kings Cross in an area degenerated to an extent that one wouldn’t expect any human beings living there; however, the presence of cars shows that this is a residential area and indeed, occasionally people pass by. They look like ordinary people and in their faces and clothes you cannot recognize the inhospitality they are from. Just a few blocks further down one can even discover a small hotel and I wonder how tourists may feel about coming to visit a world metropolis and finding themselves in an urban desert.
