Amongst the chaos of pilgrims I sat down, and concentrated on my calories. Out of nowhere an old man that was identical to the Father of the Smurfs (white beard and nearly bold) appeared and sat down on my table. There were plenty of tables empty around the place but he chose mine and once he was firmly sitting down said "can I sit down?". ...
