    This is more of a rant.

    Basically I am not Italian. I can't speak or even understand Italian yet I get random Italian people approaching me.
    I am of a Pakistani descent. No one believe that I am of a Pakistani origin. The people start quizzing me as if I know the answers to the questions. I don't. I really don't care.

    It's your skin tone most likely. They think you're Italian.

    Yes. I know people who are from the same area as you are and they just look like they are tanned. You said you have Pakistani descent - so are you mixed race, because perhaps if one parent was Pakistani with a Middle Eastern complexion, and that has been mixed with a white skin tone, then it just makes you look Mediterranean.

    Both parents are Pakistani. I am not mixed race, from what I am aware of.

    Bold- confused.

    Never?! It's not bad, Turkish is often a bit too meaty for my liking lol. And meh, the effort of learning another language, I can read it though :smartass: I guess I'll just have to settle with full prices :sad:
