    I travel here in Duma always by pedicab...And on numerous occasions have had people in the front of the cab move out to the side..... so I could ride up front...It seems as though because I am an American .. they want to show me respect for some reason ... and I am very moved when they do that ... as... I do not feel I am more special than they...So when it does happen I pay there fare in respect back to them...

    I doubt there is any type of standard being set for his act of kindness. It would be a completely unenforceable standard even if so.

    I was not intending it to be more than a Light hearted view of how some, may see this sort of things as a norm when 1 Kind natured person does as Lenny has done.
    Nothing about a standard or anything enforceable.
