‘I’m impressed with Griggs’ ability to drive in the city… We drive around for ages, trying to work out where to park the car… He decides that we need to park in a quieter street just outside the city.
‘Do you know where?’ I ask.
He shrugs. ‘I don’t want to be seen too close to home. Everyone knows everyone.’
‘Waterloo. About five minutes from here.’ – pg 220
Unfortunately, I don’t share Jonah’s ability to drive in the city, although we did drive around for ages, trying to work out where to park the car (actually sums up the week perfectly) … And find a sign that said Waterloo. As you can see, we weren’t very successful so we had to get creative. Notice that the word ‘Waterloo’ is not positioned in the middle of the sign. I know that, what with Rachel’s impeccable photography skills, there would be no way you would notice this minor sleight of hand if we hadn’t pointed it out. The sign actually said ‘Waterloo Oval’ but we’ll just ignore that. The point is, we were in Waterloo. Where Jonah Griggs lives. Fictional or not, it was a pretty big deal.
