Hello Mister

Business meetings occupy a good part of my day. Then it is time for my afternoon workout. I try to walk briskly but now every inch of Dailan’s streets are packed with people. As a Westerner I stand out. Perhaps it is my blue eyes. Many people turn their heads to look at me as I wobble by. Then, someone says “Hello Mister”. Standing next to me a well dressed young man tries to keep up the pace with me. “Where are you from?”, my new found friend wants to know. Finally, I accept his invitation to have coffee in a nearby hotel. We exchange stories about our countries. For me it is very enjoyable. As we bid farewell an start walking again someone else says, “Hello Mister”.
