Living there vs Visiting ( was British Faults)

People speak to you in these villages and in Bamberg, maybe in English, because you're exoctic at that time. I had that too. But then they stop, because you aren't exotic anymore when you live here and speaking in a foreign language is tiring, frustrating and only goes so far (even if they're good). So you'll be left alone. 

It's interesting that you mention that.  I have visited Bamberg pretty much every year since 2003.  I still see some of the same local faces in the brewery pubs as I did 15 years ago, but when I first visited, many of them would go out of their way to talk to me, but now I am lucky to get a nod.  I am not complaining.  This is natural, and I am not comparing my frequent visits to actually living there, but I can see how it goes.
