Your mtDNA mutations were at 16189, 16356, and 16362. According to the
database I consulted (
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~macaulay/founder2000/keyA.html ), this is a
European pattern. However, mtDNA doesn't code for any physical traits that
can be identified as European or Asian. All of your ancestral lines could
contribute to those outward traits.
