u don't look too skinny.
as for cyrillic, he he, it's true dutch people are much more polite than british.
they are nearly like americans!
(who really do smile too much, i agree!)
the other europeans, though are not polite.
i remember one memorable journey on tarom (romanian air) where my husband asked for milk in his coffee.
the steward replied 'what?!'
he said 'do you have milk?'
the steward replied 'no!'
it was like: of course they didn't have milk. what idiot would drink milk in their coffee?!
as for me, i am skinny and have really crooked teeth, but i do smile a bit much.
especially in church!
