|Can I pass for a Nepali?|
Being a chameleon is good in some ways. I am able to mingle hassle-free with the locals. I sometimes get pretty good discounts in tourist spots, as long as I don’t open my mouth. I don’t get to pay inflated tourist fares when using public transport.

I can go on and on about similar experiences, but maybe I should reserve that for another time. For now, I am satisfied that although I am the odd one out here in Bor (the only Filipino, a woman at that), I am treated the same way a respectable Dinka is treated.
