Chivalry is word used by the French and practised by the English; synical old me wonders if the French guy stopped because he saw "Un Anglais" and didn't want to be outdone.
But nevertheless the old lady received the help she deserved................. on a philosphical note, if you don't believe in coincidence, how come you were in that place and that time to help that lady at precisely the moment she needed it.
2 minutes earlier or 2 minutes later and it would have been a completely different story.
Keep enjoying your holiday and practising your chivalry.
