Well haven’t written in a while because I have been experiencing so much. We finally had a meeting about my schedule and decided I will be teaching Art and Yoga in Mae Tang and Chiang Mai. And I will teach in Chiang Mai on Fridays so now my days off are Saturday and Sunday. At least it is decided.
Finally time for my actual days off. I had a list of things I needed that I didn’t bring. The burden of packing light. However I was happy to be able to shop. I rode a bike around town to see what I could see and kill some time. I found some nice shops and oriented myself with the city. When I got to the clothing store I found a few things to try on.
Question: What size am I? I was looking at t-shirts. In America I am a Small or Medium so I found a S, M and L because they looked like they were running small. NONE OF THEM FIT. In Thailand I am a XL. So I guess the random body image complex I had in High School does have some merit. Regardless I bought a few more things to make myself comfortable.
I also had my first Thai Massage! Wow a one-hour full body massage and body work for about $4. I am in. I may have one a week.
Saturday night Shelly Lisa and I went to the night walking market. Very fun but markets are still overwhelming to me. I don’t even know what I am looking for let alone if I want to buy anything. So again I just walked around and took everything in.
