Ok, we stink

Is it just me or does London absolutely reek when it gets hot?

I walked through Lisle Street in Chinatown today and the council were out picking up the rubbish.

As I walked past their truck a wave of hot foul air hit me and I almost chundered (not that the place would have looked any worse for it, it’s filthy).

It never smelt this bad in other warm cities I have been in, is London just filthier?
