Reasons to be cheerful

It's traditional for Londoners to list every example of graceless behaviour that they come across in the average day. It's important to redress the balance when you can. Came out of the station this evening on my way home and was walking alongside the park. There were about ten teenagers just on the other side of the fence. 15-16, I would say. Probably Cypriot. Half boys, half girls. What was remarkable was that they were rehearsing a dance routine. I couldn't make out whether it was something traditional for a Greek wedding or what my daughter would call "street dance". However it was choreographed and with the setting sun in the background it made a heartening sight.
