I am coming from a place called home

Today I received an awesome present: “I miss my friends from Bosnia… you remind me of them…”, a friend told me.

It made me remember of another two similar precious gifts received in the last years: “you are very much black even with your white skin” (a very dear friend) and “you are more Indian than Indians” (a very dear professor).
I couldn’t help wondering once again how come people find me similar to them in such different contexts.
I guess the cliché ‘we are all the same’ suits here, otherwise I’m not sure how to explain this.
