He waits sitting, most of the time behind the wheel and singing about what is going on ahead. With a ready answer and an easy smile, he is the master of a bag that allows him to always escape with air the trappings that technology, colleagues and a mysterious absent boss seem to sow him along the way. Neither the death of Napoleon (a cat), nor a persistent knee pain, or a familiar frenzy make him fall: there is no harm in a song not winning. But in front of Lucinda, the receptionist at the Almadrava Hotel, the music is different.
