Our breakfast engagement is the only time he has available right now.The fight he witnessed on the bus back to his Shoreditch digs last night notwithstanding, 'it feels really nice to be back in London.' But for this poetic young man, even casual street aggro adds to the 'tempo' of the place, just as it does in harum-scarum Mexico City.'London has a very special colour,' he rhapsodises in his furry, fluent, Spanish-accented English, 'looking at it objectively.
