I went down to the corner store earlier to get some beer, and as I was waiting in line, I looked up to see a blond-haired, blue-eyed woman walk in the door. Now, this is China, so this falls into the category of awkward expat moments that happen occasionally when you think to yourself, “Should I greet her? Wait, why should I? I don’t know this person, and if it was in any Western country I wouldn’t even notice her, let alone randomly say hi. What am I supposed to do, say ‘hello, fellow foreigner?’ Don’t I get annoyed when people single me out simply because I’m not Chinese? But wait, if I don’t greet her, would that be rude? Would she think I’m looking down on her?” Etc. Etc. I live in a tier-2 city, so there are a good amount of foreigners, but not tons like in Beijing or Shanghai. Ah the life of an expat.
