NATIONALITIES I HAVE BEEN MISTAKEN FOR WHILST TRAVELLING IN LATIN AMERICA

Never British. 😢 Also, weirdly, never Pakistani/Indian either. The standard response when told I'm British, "But... you're so brown?!"
  1. Colombian
  2. Argentinian
    From some Colombians I'd been chatting to for 10 minutes. I've been learning Spanish for a few months. I'll let you conclude what Colombians think about Argentine Spanish...
  3. Mexican
    This was the funniest one - an elderly Colombian lady who said several times "you're DEFINITELY Mexican - DEFINITELY!"
  4. Venezuelan
  5. Brazilian
  6. Latina/South American
    General catch all used the most often.
