Later we went across the road to the Mall. Rumours that there was costa coffee there. We were overwhelmed by the number of people employed - door men, two for each entrance, a man at the bottom of the escalator who switched it on as we approached, and one at the top to turn it off again, doorman at every boutique door, cleaners all over the place polishing floors, handrails, glass.

We found the costa coffee and while we were waiting for our drinks an argument broke out between a customer and a worker. The customer pointed aggressively in the workers face, grabbed him by the collar and slapped him in the face. Everybody just watched until an older woman went over to restore harmony.
