We went on to talk about paintings (he started it). And how he got to like Picasso, how he discovered that Picasso did not use straight lines, that all his lines were curves or crooked, ... (Actually I wasn’t sure what he was talking about.)
Anyway, there was a surreal feeling about all that. Normally taxi drivers talk about the (bad) government, bad drivers, the weather, housing prices, etc. This one was certainly different, and a welcome break. The world would be a more interesting place if there were more people like that.
