Moments in South Asia #1

I'm going to start a bit of a series of things that a foreigner might experience in South Asia. They could be awkward, funny, embarrassing, heartening, or sad--but all of them have happened before. Here's number one.

1 A complete stranger (man) walks up to you (man), and says, "excuse me, I felt I needed to tell you that you are very beautiful."


  1. Ha ha! Did it happen to your dad?

  2. no...I won't say who it happened to, he might not like that ;-)

  3. I guess if you are a foreigner it would be a good thing that you didn't understand the language...
