Being a Double Outsider


I have just been interviewed by Ideal TV for a business programme going out in a couple of weeks.  Good interview proving, as I have always said, that the same issues are relevant all over the globe.  The point is,  I had to have full make-up for the interview and I have been asked to keep it on for filming this afternoon.  So I am wandering around the hotel in make-up and getting some very strange looks all round particularly in the lift.  But I am a stranger, I can’t speak Portugese and explain that it is for filming purposes.  So I get the flash of curious repulsion,  and I suddenly feel a double outsider, by  culture and language but also by my own perceived behaviour.
