When I say hi to Thai people who live in the same condo as me. Some of them are quite surprised, startled even, that I speak to them at all. I think it’s not uncommon for city people to live so close to their neighbors, and yet be anonymous to each other in this way. Maybe there are just too many people around for us to notice one another. To some degree, it’s the same in Hong Kong and other big Asian cities where I’ve lived before. But you can always say hi to me when you see me by the pool or at @mr.gunn_smoothie bar!
