The Citroën Berlingo has not traveled 1 km that, already, the subject is essential. In the car of Mathieu*, a work-study student, Nadine has just boarded the Boissy-Saint-Léger station, in the Paris region. Thanks to BlaBlaCar, these two have found each other and will go a long way together. She, in her fifties, goes to visit her sick mother in Saint-Dizier (Haute-Marne). He decided to take advantage of the month of August to go on an adventure in the great East. He is only very rarely out of France and wants to see the country. Direction: Lorraine, Alsace, Germany and Belgium.
His freshly cleaned Berlingo is older than him – it dates from 1997 and gives off a very nasty smell of gasoline. The sound system, bloodless, was replaced by a Bluetooth speaker cleverly embedded in a recess of the cabin. Mathieu, a lover of contemporary rap, applies himself to broadcasting a consensual playlist, with old hits by Michael Jackson or Ray Charles. And quite naturally, one minute after the start, we start talking about the price of fuel.
