When I lived in Hawaii, everyone thought I was part Japanese. I also have the
slanted, almost Asian eyes, but they're blue. I've had a lot of people ask me
what my ethnic background is -- most think it's Filipina, Japanese or Thai.
I've always wondered about it, and that was, in part, what propelled me into
the whole DNA issue.
My father's mtDNA is K -- but I came out very garden variety H, with only the
16519C variation.
How likely is it that Genghis Khan actually left such a trace, and that it
would be picked up so much later?
