This looks like a really good book, with two generous sections of photographs to illustrate it. Thank you very much, Lamilla!

Journal Entry 3 by wingover-the-moonwing at Lausanne, Vaud Switzerland on Saturday, December 11, 2021
An amazing story that's even the more exciting because it's true.

While reading it I remembered an encounter I had on a train between London and Darlington when I was about 18 (so this was in the 1960s). A good-looking young man was sitting next to me and he engaged a conversation by asking about my book, which I think was probably Emma as it was one I carried around with me. He had a foreign accent and was very charming but a bit strange because at one point he told me he was a spy. Of course I didn't believe him, why would a spy admit that to an unknown 18-year-old girl? Then he said, well to prove it, do you remember when I took my cigarette lighter out? I photographed you with it. I started to think he was maybe slightly mad. Some time later a surprising thing happened - he got up and left the carriage, and then the train stopped between stations, in the middle of nowhere - all I could see out of the window was snow-covered fields. I heard voices outside, and suddenly, there was my man running past the window, brandishing his umbrella! He waved to me and disappeared, and the train moved on.
