An odd thing happened on holiday in France. As we slogged our way up the narrow and steep cobbled streets of St Emilion with a twin buggy and a toddler refusing to walk we ran into some Korean tourists. Or I should say they spotted us, ran over to us and blocked our path.
For a few bizarre minutes all of our new best friends had their photographs taken with the girls, taken with each other and the girls or just of the girls. We didn’t have any say in the matter! The locals as you can imagine just looked on in bemusement!
I have no real idea why the sudden bombardment. Maybe its due to the fact twins in East Asia are much rarer than in Europe. In the UK the twin rate is one in every 70 pregnancies while in Korea, China and Japan its one in 250 pregnancies.
Or maybe they were just bored. Who knows. It was an odd 5 minutes!
