eurostar static

It was most refreshing to hear the (very quiet) conversation of an Australian family sitting in the Eurostar to Paris across me, after being submitted, while waiting to board the train, to an horrid phone conversation of a father (?!) with his teenage child trying to be excused from a math test the same afternoon. (The  level of the insults launched at the child would have qualified as child abuse. And cannot be printed here!)

[After entering the very first tunnel, a few minutes after departure] Are we entering France now?

[While still in England] Are we going to see the sea?

[Once in Northern France, crossing the wheat fields of Le Nord] This is very green, but where is the cattle?
