Travel zoo

I am borrowing this term from a fellow long term bike traveler
He calls it.......Travel Zoo.
Where ever you go down here, you always have a at least one pair of eyes on you.
Some times a lot of eyes
People just stand there and stare.
And I can't get off my bike without a barrage of questions
And the same questions too
Where are you coming from
How big is the motor
how much does the bike cost
How fast does it go
Etc
Plan on an extra ten minutes at every stop to answer these questions
It us ok sometimes but when I am in a hurry, it is annoying.
But I dont want to be rude.
And a lot of times it us nice to speak with someone that shows an interest in my travels
But it is the looks I get that gets old.
It is like I am an animal at the zoo.
Everyone is looking
What are they thinking
I know what I am thinking..........better get out of there before they are brave enough to start asking questions.
