As I sit here in the cafe, there are about 13 people. 3 couples are near me, 1 pair seeming of poly/uni age so maybe that explains them.
The other 2 couples are definitely of working age. Yet one laughing couple are dressed casually, guy in round neck tee and jeans, girl with nice makeup and in a maxi dress. They've been here for about an hour so they weren't in an office today. They talk about him going to the gym and the songs she sang today. (Recording artiste?) What do they do?
Another pair, the guy is in office garb. How come he's not in the office? How is it he's free to sit with the girl in the pretty designer club dress in the late afternoon? Does his boss know he's here?
And that's just the people nearer to me. What about the other guy wearing office shirt sitting at a table reading a magazine? (jobless? Just went for an interview?) Or the guy wearing tee and shorts writing in a binded book? (working from 'home'? Studying?) or the 2 western expats? (don't they usually have jobs here?)
I know why I'm here but what about the rest? How is it that some people don't have to be in an office during working hours? How is it they can work from this cozy cafe like I am trying to do?
And more interestingly: How can I do what they are doing?
