They discovered that train stations often made the best locale for a busker to set up shop. Regardless of the country or city, people seemed more inclined to pause and listen to Elijah play, and then express their appreciation for his genius with a generous hand. Sean never found it boring.

Family and friends reacted with horror to his nomadic existence kicking around Europe in a small blue caravan and living hand-to-mouth. They called it a waste and begged him please, for god's sake to see sense and come home. But he didn't agree.
