International symbol of comfort,
source of caffeine sustenance:
my desperate attempt at staying on high alert for a night flightDSCN0365

Feels right at home.
Cafes do have that power of teleportation;
the right ambience and there you have it – instant comfort.

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
