These chairs are for TV viewing only. At the bus station in Philadelphia the bucket seats have black and white, plastic-coated televisions attached to them. A man used his as a pillow, the other occupants of the seats stared blankly out the window, but I, not accustomed to such things, slipped a quarter into the slot and watched Mash on a crackling screen until the bus arrived. I probably wouldn’t have found it as funny if the chairs had had Gameboys attached to them.

    About an attendance and a comment in my photo diary “Fototagebuch” I would be pleased.
    Greeting from good old Germany
