The lady in red

The lady in red caught my eye because, with the exception of her pants, everything she was wearing, shoes, bag, hat, earrings, computer bag was red. 
She looked totally lost and I could not help but try to figure out what her story might be.
The story behind this might be that she arrived in Belgium by train at the Midi station, managed to take the subway to what she thought was going to be downtown- she is standing near the metro entrance at Place Louise-  and felt lost. 
She had no idea either on how to go about getting a cab but she finally managed because a kind  taxi driver pointed out the way to the taxi stand.... that is as far as the story goes... 
But, as stories go, my interpretation might be totally farfetched and she might be a "habituée", going to a weekly Socialist Party meeting at the Brussels headquarters.
