Click here to hear the author read his words:
I am unperturbed by the slow pace of the queue at immigration until, as I approach the official, I open my passport and stop dead.
I stare in disbelief at the face I see, because it’s not mine, very clearly not mine, ethnically different from mine, so whose passport do I have, and how?
I obviously had my own when I boarded in Nice, I think to myself, and then I notice another strange thing, that my name and my date of birth are correct.
‘Passport, sir?’ he says, causing me to look at the outstretched hand, and, totally clueless as to how I can explain this, I hand it over, still searching for words.
I get a long hard look from the man behind the window as the passport is checked and scanned.
Then he smiles and nods ‘Enjoy your stay, sir.’
