Lost In New York, parts 4552 - 4555


 4552. But it was much worse for Coromo I have to say. Napoleon had already conquered the world once, and might have conquered it yet again, because he was certainly able, but our hero had not yet left his doorstep, and was now rendered unable to do so. 


 4553. I am so anxious to get to the part of this story where Coromo walks into the terminal of the Airport in New York and is overwhelmed by confusion and excitement. I want to describe how he spent an hour looking for a nonexistent subway entrance, and finally purchased a ticket on an airport bus. 


 4554. I want to begin telling you how he could not get over his anxiety that the bus was going somewhere other than Manhattan, and how he asked three people the same questions about the bus but was somehow unable to get a satisfactory answer.


 4555. He could not get a satisfactory answer to his questions because everyone was talking in an English much too fast and garbled, and he could only understand a word or two, and even of those he was not sure.
