Another simple, yet strange story from these past months. I was taking Henrique to the vet to do his body check routine. I had to use public transportation since my car was also doing a "body check" (takes a few days since it is an old car).
We got off the taxi nearby where the animal hospital is, we walked a few minutes to the reception and waited. My sister was text messaging with her friend on her phone (Oh yes, this happened before the previous story if you are curious).
Let me just say, the train station was far away and there is no way that we will hear any train horn.
As we waited, we heard a very loud what sounded like a train horn.
We looked out, my sister got so scared that she had thrown her phone across the wall (that was the reason she got her new phone). Henrique too was surprised, he shook the basket and peeked his front paws out.
I thought it was someone's car or truck with crazy horns, I looked out and tried to spot who that was but there were no vehicles around.
Everyone at the reception too heard that loud honking, they were asking what that was and some even said that they thought it was some of those YouTube prankers, well I did a research on them... It seems that they have DIYed their car horn. Well, they could never come to Brazil since it is illegal to DIY horns or any vehicle parts unless they have special reasons...yes... It is illegal, right?
Anyhow, I was checking that if there were any uncommon railways around, of course there is none...
This seemed very odd and very uncomforting, we will never know when this loud horn will be heard again and we do not know what that was. Well, yes even if we are being pranked who in the world would cats and dogs?
I watched some of those clips on YouTube; it was just like one of those pranks, but strangely, none of us spotted crazy teenagers laughing and filming, hidden cameras maybe? What a waste! Perhaps, if any of you found a clip filmed in an animal hospital in Brazil, let me know? If you are thinking to subscribe one of those pranksters DON'T, time wasting and those pranks are bad! It is not funny, scary in another form.
Now serious question for all, do you think old rail roads and train could haunt? I have heard of old stories about haunted ships and boats, but never really saw one myself, yes, there are lots of stories on them but very little have investigators investing at all...
