Roof terraces, they’re the hidden part of a city. The part which you know must be there but you can’t locate them. They’re inaccessible little fortresses of privacy and solitude and being invited to one is an honour of the highest kind.
They are an oasis of peace in an environment that is otherwise chaotic. The thousands of tourists, merchants, exhaust fumes, ugly concrete buildings dissolve in thin air when you’re on your roof terrace.
It has been scientifically proven that this is the only way to survive in an urban area.
