I remember really getting sick of people staring at me in Japan! Yes, I actually would stare back at people, especially children, that would stare at me. One time I gave a little boy on the train a pretty evil look (I wasn't having the best day) and he moved away from me and hid behind his mom. Didn't cry though. I remember thinking, "Well, that's what you get for staring at me!" It's hard to be sympathetic when you're treated like a freak in a side show. Anywho, more "staring back" adventures are yet to come!
