Do you use an umbrella for sun protection?

It seems common in the Asian culture to use an umbrella to protect themselves from the sun, but I have never really seen anyone else do it. Have you ever used one while walking around?

I go to the beach a lot and have fair skin (but do tan the 2nd time around) and so does my SO...I always bring the umbrella to stay in the shade and not burn.....

I have never used one while walking around, but sometimes when we go to my kids baseball games during the summer I will use one, and so will my youngest DD. If she gets too hot she breaks out in hives and gets very itchy..so she uses an umbrella and keeps a small fan with her too.

All races? It seems to be a very cultural thing here.
