While I was walking out of Ueno station, a tall man and I did the foreigner nod and then he said he had seen me on TV (for being barefoot). We shook hands and talked for a bit about the importance of doing one’s own thing.
He said, “I respect you,” and I should have said if he sees respectability in me, that means it’s in him, too.
I gotta stop and chat a bit longer to people who say HI like that, but I dunno what to say. Maybe I will ask if they live in Tokyo.
