Summary/Abstract: What was the name of that village? Or it wasn’t a village, just a house we saw from the road. Nicely set on a glade, lost in the white mist, with a thick grove of tall firs behind it; everything clean, beautiful, romantic, except that our car broke down. Like hell it broke down, we caught on a part of a hill, climbed it, went back to the road, crash! and bang! And then you crank it, crank, but nothing happens. And now what? We get out, like, we’ll take care of it. We pop the hood, an unknown world opens before us... We recognize the battery. But it works. We look at the engine, then at the house on the glade, we walk around the car, check the tires, everything’s new, everything works. And then we crank the engine again. Nothing. Then we cuss a little, best thing we can do is leave it there, but we’re not movie stars. We gaze at the sky waiting for someone unknown.
