Theroux looks at Duffil's clothes and packages that were left on the train and muses that it was lucky that it didn't happen to him! After all, he was just about to step off and buy something himself. Poor Duffil was heading all the way to Turkey on a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and now his trip was doomed; he hadn't even gotten out of central Europe.
Theroux called it "Getting Duffiled."

Somehow, through sheer dumb luck, I had avoided 3 strokes of the Duffil.
