... but I have to say he handled it pretty well.
Everywhere we went people asked, "Mister, mister! I photo, ya?" and they would come up with cameras and phones and take photos. The moment one person stopped us it was like 20 more people popped out of nowhere and started taking photos. Kyle did the showstopper and would pick up the person for the photo.
