Afternoon tea at Jane Austin's

Afternoon tea at Jane Austin's

The Jane Austen Centre Tea Room is worth a visit, if not just for the tea also for some people watching.

The slightly grayish lady in one corner by the windows looks like she is primarily here for the literature, but secretly inside she so wants to be in Mansfield Park but only observing, she would never dare to talk to the handsome gentleman she so admires. The only moment this lady's eyes are averted from her Austen novel is when the waitress comes to her with 'Ladies Afternoon Tea'.

In the other corner by the windows sits this young lady in a pink sweater, perfect hair and very beautiful face. She sips some tea, reads a page from the Jane Austen novel she has with her and sits then for a long time gazing ethereally out the window. I bet she's here not so much for the prose, but rather the longing of epic romance as it only could be in the early 19th century England. I wonder if that is 'Tea with Mr Darcy' she's having?
