I was walking the other day after work to the subway station.
The late afternoon weather was amazing and the sun was setting behind the tress. I was thinking how lucky I am to be living here in and enjoying my time.
Then I saw another expat (White man).
I was little stunned because I never see other white people around here. I mean never.
I flashed a smile and said “hello”.
He nodded in a “…don’t talk to me..”, sort of way.
This is a thing, and I don’t know why. It’s like an expat curse of some sort.
And I do find myself looking the other way when I see other expats.
I don’t know why we, sometimes act this way.
Maybe, we have met too many other arrogant expats and we jay don’t want to deal with meeting another.
I find European and African expats to be the most approachable and kind.
Which reminds me… I need to work on my own kindness as well.
Peace and Love, -Ace
