If someone approaches you, in particular near a major touristy place, and asks you where you’re from… lie. Don’t get into a conversation. They want your money and there’s every possibility it’s by dodgy means. Plus it’s fun seeing what responses you get for countries other than your own. In Thailand, they seem to have stock phrases for certain places (England: David Beckham! Lubbly Jubbly! America: Hamburgers and Hail to you chief! Australia: Haha! G’day mate!) which apparently make them your friend automatically. Fancy a giggle? Try Latvia, Czech Republic, Bratislava or Bhutan.
