Follow that cab...........

Alina Ibragimova arrives in the Britten Sinfonia taxi

I went to a conference at the John Innes Centre in Norwich yesterday. There is always a slight thrill as the train approaches the station: will the Britten Sinfonia taxi be in the queue and if it is, will it reach the front of the queue at the same time as me? I’m not sure how many taxis there are in Norwich, so I can’t even begin to calculate the probability of this happening, but yesterday, yes, it was there, and no, somebody one place ahead of me stepped into it. Amazingly, for the next 20 minutes, my taxi followed the Britten Sinfonia taxi, to the same destination: I could, for once, have said ‘follow that cab’.
