‘This is how we interact with locals’ is part of the series “This is how… by TwistingSpokes.com”. During our journey we very much enjoy the interaction with local people on the road, in small villages and in cities. But communication and interaction is not always easy. In this post we will explain how we approach these interactions.
We are very much aware that how we look influences the way we interact with locals. We are two westerners on bicycles with huge bags and we are noticed on the road. We find it very important to adapt as much as we can when we are on the road to shorten the distance between us and the people around us. This is one of the reasons also why we travel by bike.
