At the taxi rank near the Palace Theatre yesterday there were, at first, no taxis, and a few people wanting taxis, including us. We were second in the queue, and the young woman ahead of us kindly offered to share her cab when in due course one arrived, since she was going a shorter journey in the same direction.
She was from India and on her way to Rusholme to obtain what she needed for a meal she was cooking for friends. In the conversation on the way:
She: Where are you from?Exactly like that.
She: Oh, do you like cricket?
