this is so true. I went this july there, while having an identity crisis, but felt the same disconnection you describe in your article. In the country I was born in, people dont have that much money, but they are happier in a true meaning, aware and in touch with their own feelings and with others feelings. I almost felt like crying while reading what you wrote about London, cause when I came back, I didn't know how to explain to one of my friends what it was that I found so horrible about this city. It's such a shame that people live in such disconnection not only among themselves, but from themselves.
