I was once pestered in Paris by a very persistent Frenchman who might have wanted to take me for lunch...or he might have been a serial killer. In sign language I told him I didn't know what he was saying. He went through all the languages he knew. I answered in Gaelic (saying the only Gaelic phrase I know - Thank you for the handkerchief..) over and over again. Eventually he went away.
Imagine what he's telling his friends back home in Iowa about his experience with this lady in Paris he was just asking for the time.
Friend of mine did the same with a persistent Italian on a trip to Venice. She answered in Welsh, which threw him completely.Good advice all round Cara!
I loved it, Cara! Seems to combine the "best" of a combination between NYC and Athens, with Central Park standing in for ##s 11 & 18.
I will keep these things in mind as I watch Le Tour and wish I could be there.
