The other evening I was walking to the tube station – through the madding crowds – to get home after a hard day at work. I work in professional services but our office is in the very heart of London’s West End (i.e. theatre, entertainment and consequently tourist district). Lively and cosmopolitan for sure, though extremely busy.
I walked past a bar with some distinctively dressed men outside, clad in breeches and waistcoats, speaking what sounded like German. They were intermittently yodeling (beer tankards in hand).
It’s a unique sound. Quite special really. It originates from Switzerland and Austria.
I’m not much of a singer but I wish I could yodel.
