Photo Time – Our Photographer


Since arriving in Beijing we have had the experience of people wanting a photo of us. People want to pose with us or just snap a shot. Neither of us were expecting this especially after the Olympics but it appears that they haven’t seen many blonde haired women in China. I suppose on the plus side at least most of them ask us if they can take a photo and usually don’t if we say no.

However, in other countries the request for a photo is often a scam to pick your pockets. But they will usually want a photo with you, then empty your pockets whilst hugging for the picture.

    They have a thing for white people, especially blonde, and even more especially tattooed in China and Thailand.
