This young woman comes and taps me on the elbow.
"Hello," she says, "How are you?"
I smile and wait for her to ask me for directions. Maybe she'd ask me for directions to the metro and I could actually tell her how to get there.
"How are you?," she asks again.
"I'm okay," I tell the polite woman, "but how can I help you?"
"My name is -- and I am from --," she tells me, "where are you from?"
"I'm a tourist too," I reply, "but maybe I can help you."
"If you want," she says lightly touching my elbow, "you and me, I can give you a massage."
