Only When I Travel (in China)

IMG_1774

Only when I travel do people tell me they like my accent.

Only when I travel do people compliment me on how white my skin is.

Only when I travel do people get my attention by saying, “Beautiful girl!”

Only when I travel do people take pictures of me rather than the attraction they paid to see.

Only when I travel do I think of odd poems:

Motorbikes chirp

and people yell,IMG_1764

Keep on walking,

what is that smell?

It might be peppers,

so don’t inhale.

Or it could be worse,

who can tell?

Find a coat,

is it on sale?

Speak Chinese

only to fail.

Someone helps,

so it all goes well.

The list goes on,

but I bid you farewell.

Until next time!
