... was in the train station as well. As usual she spoke no English so communication was challenging. Once she understood what we were seeking, and further gathered that we were unable to understand her direction she literally guided us to the proper train, traveled with us (away from her intended destination) and then walked five minutes through the back streets so she could deliver us to the front door of our destination. I had heard stories of ...
