Mirror World

In his new novel, Pattern Recognition, William Gibson calls London the mirror world. Things here are just like home -- but not quite. Cars come from unexpected places, doors open the wrong way, familiar things have strange names, and everything tastes a little strange. My cell phone works (but at what price price?), so I fit right into the street scene.
