365- Day 9 Aren't you Muslim??

I've been asked this question so many times in my life... There's something about my looks that makes people come to me and speak languages I don't understand. This happens particularly when I'm outside Mexico because, to be honest, in Mexico I do look very Mexican :P


When they start talking to me in a language I don't understand, I can't help looking lost and confused so the immediate question is: "Aren't you Muslim?"


I've made very good friends thanks to this common mistake! For example, one of my best penpals is the girl who worked in the bakery outside my school in Paris. Her name is Kayna and she's from Morocco...


I'm often asked if I'm Egyptian, from Morocco or from Saudi Arabia!


The scarf was brought to me by my dad from Thailand... Actually he brought it for someone else, but being the spoilt brat that I am, I got to keep it :P
