TOKYO: There are more Louis Vuitton stores here than 7-11s. And they buy Prada and Gucci like they,re candy.

In Shanghai, we,re always the coolest people in sight. In Tokyo, no one even glances twice.

We felt attention-deprived the first couple of days. Like, look at me! Why aren,t you taking my picture with your camera phone? Hel-LO, I,m over here- a foreigner for you to look at!

Some expats have told us that when you disembark in a non-developing country¤ you have to get used to being a normal person again.

We really like it.
