Airport

I just read a very interesting wee book called “The Terminal Man” – it’s basically the true story of the new Tom Hanks movie ‘Terminal’. It’s this Iranian guy (who keeps insisting he was born in Sweden, with no evidence whatsoever) who because of Catch-22-like situations with papers (Belgium has document A, but in order to travel to Belgium to get it you must have document B, which you cannot obtain with document A) has been living in Charles De Gaulle Airport’s Terminal One for 16 years, and counting. It’s by Sir Alfred Mehran, if you ever get the urge. Bizarre tale.

I'm painting a stange picture that will either be a triumph or a turnip. At the moment I can't tell which outcome is more likely.
