I guess technically we've exchanged a few brief conversations before, but I still wasn't sure how to react when a Roma woman took my face between her hands yesterday in the middle of a busy intersection, gave me the once over, and then said I'd make a nice Roma bride before pinching my cheek. 

Its a little foggy, but in the end I thanked her before walking away more than just a little taken off guard. 

I've decided to be flattered.

Integration, right? ;)
