Headbanging

A man, tired, carries his daughter onto the train as she rests her head on his shoulder and sucks her thumb. The train picks up speed and the man stands, resting from the waist on a suitably padded bench, with the girl half asleep and his back to the adjacent window.

One of my favourite memories of the whole holiday was sitting at the bus stop on our way back up from the beach, after dinner. The hill up from the sea front, winding through narrow alleyways…
