Intermediate SFX

How often does it happen, that we find ourselves in places, where we didn’t want to spend our time? I spend a lot of time in subway stations or trains watching other people waiting. When I looked around at the Berlin Airport Schönefeld it seemed to me, that these people are in an „in between area“. They are not at home nor in their holidays. It seems like a piece of live time, that one has to pass, to get to the interesting moments afterwards. The place is build, to satisfy the needs of the passengers. But it seems as if they can’t understand these structures.
