How did Pablo Neruda know that somebody behind him was looking at him?

While Paulo Neruda was enjoying his meal at a table, a woman wearing a snake ring on her index finger sat three chairs away. Neruda noticed her gaze fixed upon him and promptly alerted the author about someone behind him staring at him. Intrigued, the author turned his head and confirmed the truth of Neruda’s observation. There sat a bold woman, adorned in an old-fashioned felt hat and a purple scarf, calmly consuming her meal while staring directly at the author. Instantly, the author recognized her. Despite the passage of time and her physical transformation into an older, heavier figure, there was no mistaking her identity. It was Frau Frieda, the very same woman with the snake ring on her index finger, steadfastly fixated on Pablo Neruda.
