Famous Justin

21 Oct

Typically we have been almost the only Westerners everywhere we go.  We see people on tours at the major sites, but with the exception of Yangshou we are often the only Western people on the streets or in the restaurants, which means we get stared at a lot.

Actually, Justin seems to be quite famous here, people keep coming up and asking to have their picture taken with him, though they seem to want nothing to do with the rest of us.   Often, once one person asks for a photo it opens up the floodgates and we occasionally end up with a line of people waiting for their turn for a photo.  Every time it happens I also take a photo – we are going to make a whole album dedicated to these pictures.

People seem to be mostly fascinated with his hair (curly is certainly an oddity here) and he has been asked multiple times, and mostly by men, if it’s real.  Another interesting behavior is that people, again, mostly men, want to pose with their arms linked though his.  It’s as if they want to appear to be great friends.  This was an altogether unanticipated phenomenon, but a highly amusing one.
