people shout at you on the stree'how areyou', 'wherea re you from?" is a common first question, before how are you. people are super friendly, sometimes a bit too curious what you are.
i guess very common experience a lot of other countries share.

so i don't understand why people are still interested.
if i don't know something it is exotic, new. curioustity, something which was always just an ideea is real now. so real. i guess it is the same when i see a tiger. a tiger is dangerous, but still so exotic that in that moment i forget that but just wanna stare and see if this thing i always had in my head is real. or like the queen. i always asked myself how the queen, queen of england is in real life. cause she must eat, drink tea, certainly, but how.
i do not intend to compare myself with the queen, but maybe it is like that. i am just a stereotype, an idea of a foreigner, and because it is not implied within their everyday life they buildup a picture based on stereotypes and as much as people are curious they also have a picture.
i am sometimes not the nicest person. above all when i am walking. i am rude, angree by times, just because i have to be quick, and most people around em not. so they stand in my way. or when they try to stop me because of another ' how are you' , 'where are you from' question. sometimes i do not have time.
do i have to be nice just to prove that white people are nice?
