I'm not sure why, but at one point while visiting a temple in China I was approached by a young native girl and was asked if they could take a picture of themselves with me. Before I knew it they all were surrounding me like I was a movie star and saying things in broken English like "You so cool! You cool guy!" and giggling with delight.
Of course I played it up and delighted them with my generous and lavish charm. One girl wanted my phone number. It's amazing how some people just know a famous person when they see one.
