• My, What a Beautiful Nose You Have

    These are a series of true conversations that took place over the last few months. That it happened once was odd. That it’s happened three times is blog worthy.


    Vietnam, circa two months ago:

    Hmong woman: “Hello! You buy from me! I give you good price! You have beautiful nose!”


    Indonesia, two weeks ago:

    Random Indonesian man: “Hello! Where you from? You have a beautiful nose!”


    Indonesia, two days ago:

    Ikat weaving sales lady: Points to her nose (she’s didn’t speak English), then points at us and gives us a thumbs up.


    Strange, but true. Southeast Asia gets pumped about the Engstrom nose.
