Phoenix Suns jersey & shorts on the subway today. He didn't speak any English, so in my elementary Chinese, I tried to tell him why I wanted a photo with him. I was able to say, "I'm American. That's my..." Ugh! I don't know the word for "city"! Okay, try again. I pointed at his shirt & said in Chinese, "I live there." That didn't work either. (I'm sure my pronunciation is atrocious.) Finally I pulled out my camera & gestured that I wanted a photo with him. He was still confused but consented.
The rest of the passengers on the train thought the whole thing was hilarious, of course. Crazy foreigners.
