From the (TGV) train, Jan. 21, 2011“…tiens, on est déjà à François Mitterand… ah non, c’est Musée d’Orsay…”

“…Musée d’Orsay, c’est pas là qu’on y est déjà allé une fois?”

“…oui, oui, là où y a des statues en cire.”

“…mais non, ça, c’est Musée Grévin…”

Later, on that very same trip, I tried to help an old lady who had to change lines twice. But she was so confused in her head that she did not recognise me when I told her this was her first switch. She looked through me as if she had never seen me. And presumably she had not. I hope the poor soul eventually made it to her final destination…
