Escaping from what?

This is a very interesting story from Friday's New York Times. This girl, Hannah, 23, teacher of Spanish, went running on Riverside Drive*, New York, last August, and was found three weeks later floating on the river Hudson - alive. What happened during those three weeks nobody knows, not even she. Security cameras recorded her in the Apple store, as well as in some Starbucks. For people who like categorizing, psychiatrists call it "dissociative fugue". But reading it I thought it was more amazing than that.

*Try looking at New York City using Google Earth. It's like flying between buildings, over parks and squares...
