I like all the things you don’t know when you live in another country.
When I went to Tokyo for the first time, I took a train from the airport to the middle of town. I left the train station, and I lit a cigarette, looked around and I thought, ‘Oh, no one else is smoking.’ And then I looked and I didn’t see any trash cans, and I didn’t see any trash. So I put out the cigarette and put it in the cuff of my pants. And then I asked at the hotel and they explained that I couldn’t smoke on the street.
But I like that about going to another country. You watch the other people and do what they do. It makes you more observant….
As long as you’ve got your observant glasses on, you notice everything.
