trains and stations.mp3

Bound for Flinders Street station, I am sole occupant of my carriage.  The maximum time allowed out is a measly one hour per day and I must keep to within 5 km from home. Flinders Street is exactly on the border.. if the trains are punctual I will make it back home on time. On the station concourse I spot a friend who works there and hear some wonderful balkan? greek?  music from a bearded brightly costumed man  playing a small flute on the other side of the ticket barrier who refuses my donation. A Metro worker calls out "You beautiful man! ". This  makes my day. Entranced, I miss my train.
