Shoe? Meet Foot.

I’ve talked about how people stare at me when I walk down the street.  Some even pull out their cell-phone and take pictures.  Westerners are that unusual here that we’re still a curiosity.

Several discussions lately have dealt with why Chinese women want a western man for a husband.  Most of it has to do with money–westerners are seen as rich–but there’s also the fact that westerners aren’t Chinese.  I didn’t think about it much,  but sitting in a cab yesterday it suddenly hit me:

I am “an exotic foreigner”.   Looks like the shoe’s on the other foot.
