They are on a package tour of Turkey, and he is taking a long time looking at everything, especially old art. She is very impatient. She wants to sit someplace, drink something, and watch the passing scene in a non-intent way.

--It happens in the novel "Blaming" by Elizabeth Taylor, the British novelist.
