I bought an umbrella. Never bothered with one back in the UK, reckoning that if it was raining so hard that I actually needed one, it was raining too hard to be outside without waterproofs. But after the sixth student tried to gift me his brolly (not a euphemism, AFAIK), I broke down. At least now people will stop telling me that the rain from Japan will give me cancer.

I am finding myself looking at white foreigners and assuming they're Russian and I look at people with darker skin and assume they're from Xinjiang.  bibibibibi

Whilst walking through the streets of my boonies city I bumped into another foreigner I did not know. Shocked I found myself saying "Wow Wàiguó rén."

Yep!  That feeling of "why is there a foreigner here" is kind of special. agagagagag

There's always that revolving door policy involving foreigners. Some guys have been here longer than my 3 and a half years. Most backpackers come and go quickly. Often when the g/f and I see somebody knew while riding around, she ask me who's that.

I don't know and therefore I don't care. I'll stare for a momment then drive off trying to guess which country they're from

then drive off trying to guess which country they're from

chinalin and I saw 2 waiguoren going up an escalator to Level 2 and played the usual game of trying to guess where their nationality. It went something like:

- not Russian because they are too well dressed

- not Australian or New Zealanders because they would have waved to us

- could be Americans but they look a bit skinny

- could be English because they are wearing socks with their sandals

- their packs look so cool and expensive they could be German

We managed to catch up with them and asked the question.

They were brothers from Hong Kong - born and bred

That's not Chinese, there was educated guessing going on, Logic at work.

However the part where you ran up to them giggling and said Hello, Where are from?

That was a Chinesey thing to do.

Where's Chinalin from? You need a Canadian with you.

xwarrior - I wonder where those foreigners are from?

... and if they smiled sweetly and said, 'I'm from China,' I would know I have been out-Chinesed.

It's not so bad the Chinese looking at me thinking I'm Russian, but when Russians assume I'm Russian too, the conversation usually go like this.....

Russian: "можете вы сказать мне где...?" (Can you tell me where?...)
Me: "Huh?"
Russian: "можете вы сказать мне где...?" (Can you tell me where?...)
Me: "Huh?"
Russian: "вы русски?" (Are you Russian?)
Me: "NOPE."
Russian: "Американско?????" (American?????)
Me: "Yep!"
