Very often, the tourists from the first world countries visiting the third world countries complain of really nosey and curious public in these countries. They accuse the ‘indecency’ of the natives/locals who circle around the tourists and keep staring at them in amazement. This discomforts the tourists.
What they completely forget is what the tourists are themselves doing. They visit the countries to “look” at the natives, to be amused by them. Many actually visit to just look at the abject poverty in these countries. So they should not feel ‘discomfort’ in getting back the glances.
If this does not convince you, then google “Saartjie Baartman” to understand how the now first world countries have presented the natives/locals on displays as an object of amusement.
