#YQrtw recap: Apr 10 Sri Lanka: I’m not Korean

I’m recapping my round-the-world trip from 2013 with a photo and memory from each day of the trip. The two might be totally different events or things.

It’s little stories that make trips delightful.

I was praying at one of the altars of the stupa when a girl about 11 years old approached me.

“Excuse me, are you Korean?” she asked.

“No, sorry, I’m not.” I said.

“Do you know (Korean star name)?” she asked.

“Sorry, I don’t,” I replied.

She looked dejected and I felt sorry for her but I still couldn’t lie to a kid.
