Day 105

Things are on a slightly different scale here in Thailand. On the group trip, various folk were a little disconcerted at being bigger size for buying clothing than they were expecting—Large for some petite women, and XXL for some not-especially-huge men. This even extends to more prosaic things; the bottles of water at the resort are hard to open, because I can only fit the little finger of my left hand into the ring pull (and on occasion I've managed to pull the ring off the top, rather than the top off the bottle, cf. the bicycle incident)
