If you who are reading this post ever go to South America you can be sure that you will get a lot of attention. One good advice I can give you that is, if you have blond hair, you can hide it with a scarf. Or you can be sure that people will grab onto your hair. It happens very often that people touch your hair and you can get very tired of it. So you don’t want people to do it anymore. You can cover your hair with something so people can’t see it. And you will only recieve a lot of attention if you are light.
For example, three times people have held onto my arm when we were walking in the city and people often want to take a photo of me, even when I say I don’t want to. And if someone wants your child to do this you should consider that your child maybe doesn’t want to have their picture taken. It’s usually the parents that want the kids to take a photo with you.
