That Looks like a Burmese
Kay and I were commenting on how when we see someone on a bicycle, walking or in the store and we do a double take to see if they are Burmese. Our hearts are inclined toward our friends from Burma and so we are always interested in those we already know and new people we have not already met. However we often find ourselves guessing wrong and the person we looked at again does not turn out to be Burmese.
But some interesting things happened this week along these lines. Eh K’Lu was riding in my car and he looked at some people in a car ahead of us and said, “Oh they are Burmese”. In a minute I pulled up beside the car and he said “No, they are either Indian or Pakistani”.
Then I was traveling with Biak Cin Thang and we stopped for supper. While we were waiting he looked down the stip mall and saw some people go into the store. He said, “I saw some people who are from Myanmar”. So we walked down to the store and went in to check them out and he discovered they were of Hispanic descent.
