Sitting in the train to Bern this morning, I saw a man sitting in a seat in front of me on the other side of the aisle. He looked quite respectable with a white shirt and tie and was browsing through some papers. The typical Excel style business report with lots of bar charts.Nothing special about him. But he hid one page and kept flipping back to it and right away again. I could not clearly see what exactly was on it, but it was the picture of a woman. Maybe his wife or daughter? But why did he hide it like that? And something was not quite right with the picture, though I could not put my finger on it. It had an evil touch. Probably only my imagination. Still it keeps me wondering. Who was she and what was it that disturbed me so? The picture was too dark for her to be naked, was she bound and gagged? Did she look frightened and my sub consciousness registered it? I do not know and nor will I ever and maybe that is just a sign for me to stop reading thrillers late at night.Those were my thoughts for today, now it is back to some testing and trying to get commitments from our developers. And a large cup of coffee, going by train in the morning always makes me tired.I wish you a day as wonderful as the weather here in Bern today.StephanUse this free podcast to learn to speak German. http://german-podcast.blogspot.com
