Lately I've noticed lots of Iranians come to me and without realising I'm also an Iranian like them they start speaking English to me. the situation is so funny. I always wonder how come with my black hair and eyes they think I'm not one of them. To this day it's still a mystery to me. Me and my friends have some hypotheses but none still have been confirmed.
Firstly I guess it's because I don't wear make-up and I don't have long fashionable hair like other Iranian females so they think I'm not Iranian.
The other hypothesis is maybe because I'm tall and slim. I'm taller than average Iranians. hmmm... I gotta ask some of them where do think I'm from but usually I keep on talking to them in English and won't reveal I can speak my mother tongue too.
So funny and surprising.
