Is the reflection I see in the mirror who I am, or just the taxi that carries "me" around?

The French Girl - Prologue
Michael opened his eyes slowly, looking around and trying to reacclimatize himself.
The large bed in which he found himself was dwarfed in this grand room. Silk covered the walls, beautiful moldings lined the ceiling and a tapestry like nothing he had ever seen adorned the long wall; so grand in fact that it made the oil paintings that hung on the other walls – each their own master piece -- seem insignificant in its presence.
