    Farhad Darya doesn’t look Eastern European or German at all, he has typical features for his ethnicity, but he’s lighter (his hair are not even close to “dark blonde” though). I guess he’s genetically identical to his fellow countrymen you consider “mixed”. He also could pass for Iranian, North Indian or Pakistani (I know a kebab seller who looks a lot like him but he’s much darker). Deal with it.

      I actually agree with you, there is clearly something special about him because of his eyes (and hair, to a lesser extent), btw he still does not look European for his facial features. Yes, he could pass for a light pigmented Turk and in surrounding West Asian countries. About you, you have to understand that average Western person wouldn’t be able to place Afghanistan on a map, let alone to know how Aghans look. To me they are an intermediate between South Asians and Middle Easterners. A tiny minority look vaguely European.
