Night Train

 Das sind Fotos von einer Zugfahrt von München nach Hamburg, mit dem Nachtzug. Ich bin vorher noch nie mit einem Nachtzug gefahren und obwohl wir Betten hatten, konnten wir auch nicht besser als in Flugzeugen schlafen ;)

Insgesamt musste ich an „Skimbleshanks“ aus dem Musical „Cats“ denken, und zwar an die Stelle, die in der deutschen Übersetzung fehlt:

„It was very pleasant when they’d found their little den
With their name written up on the door
And the berth was very neat with a newly folded sheet
And not a speck of dust upon the floor
There was every sort of light
You could make it dark or bright
And a button you could turn to make a breeze
And a funny little basin you’re supposed to wash your face in
And a crank to shut the window should you sneeze
Then the guard looked in politely and would ask you very brightly,
„Do you like your morning tea weak or strong?“
But I was just behind him and was ready to remind him
For Skimble won’t let anything go wrong
When they crept into their cozy berth and pulled the counterpane
They ought to reflect that it was very nice
To know that they wouldn’t be bothered by mice
They can leave all that to the railway cat
The cat of the railway train „

Gut, ganz so war es nicht. Aber ein bisschen. Die Fotos müssten zwischen Hannover und Bremen entstanden sein, kurz vor Bremen.
