Royal encounters

When I am riding bicycles in foreign countries, and people of an elderly nature yell at me in languages that I do not understand, I do not let it confuse or upset me.

Rather, I adopt a simple and effective strategy.

I merely pretend that I am Kate Middleton, and that they are fanatic royalists desperate to express their keen regard for me. 

I smile gratefully, offer them a little royal wave, and sail on...

...happy in the knowledge that I have made their day, and they will probably go home and tell their grandchildren about our little meeting.
