Teacher, can we talk to the white people?

So yesterday in Bangalore we went to the science museum. It was ok, though a bit dated and very biased towards nuclear power and gmo foods.

But the interesting thing is that the place was full of school kids who were completely fascinated by us. They asked their teacher if they could talk to us, and then mobbed us, each wanting to shake our hands. It seemed like maybe they hadn’t seen white people at all before. Later in the day some adults asked to take their picture with us. I’m not sure if it’s “look at me with the weird foreigner” or what.

We find it kind-of amusing still, but it is starting to get old. I don’t think those kids learned much about science on their trip though, but at least they met some crazy Americans…
