Dancing #11


"Good evening," I replied, taking his hand. His handshake was firm and exuberant.
He apologised for startling me and probably introduced himself then. True to his impressively broad accent, he came from the Highlands and I told him I was delighted to be able to meet and speak with another British fellow. I had a sprinkling of knowledge of the language of this country, but of the local dialect here in these mountains I had no idea. I'd gotten by, for the last week or so, on sign language and misunderstandings. It was a great relief to speak English again.
