To put it straight, there are a lot of us in most of the European capitals. For real. I even felt a little awkward when I visited Paris during the winter holidays and noticed that I no longer turn heads when I walk down the streets as I usually do in Cluj. Also, I started to differentiate between the Koreans, Chinese and Japanese. And I started just now because I haven’t really met many people of these nationalities neither in Kazakhstan nor in Romania. Everybody says that Paris is full of tourists but I will tell you more: it is full of Asians. I met many Chinese and Korean backpackers while waiting in endless lines to get to visit the most famous tourist attractions, such as Louvre. And even if you are like me and hate staying in queues, it is worth visiting Paris just to keep track of the latest fashion trends which can easily be spotted while standing in lines. Firstly, you notice the 3D animated backpack of a Japanese and then your attention is grabbed by the magazine-like look of a Korean girl.
