Foreignness and 'the Other' Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

He did not say anything but looked at the bags against the wall of the station. There were labels on them from all the hotels where they had spent nights. (99)

Maybe Jig and the man have been traveling through Spain, maybe even more places. We can picture these bags, and they lend a sense of worldliness to the story, as sense of motion, and travel and experience.
