As much as I like to travel and visit new places I like to watch people. Wandering through the streets of city you can feel the heart of it. Watching people, how they talk, walk and acting, you recognize the soul of it. I appreciate the experience of becoming a part of visited place and it's difficult if you are there for a short time. But if you can afford to stop your sightseeing tour for a couple of hours and just sit for a while in a park or go for solitude walk and watch people instead of architecture you have a chance to recognize the soul. For me it's the most important part if you want really understand the atmosphere of the city.
“If you seek creative ideas go walking.
Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.”
