A Little Thought…The People I’ve Seen

Songthaew in Chiang Mai, Thailand

On a Songthaew ride (a shared taxi) in Chiang Mai.

The only thing that I have to say right now is wow. The Asian women who were in Korea, Bangkok and Chiang Mai are so pretty, especially the flight attendants. Their clothes looked like business women clothes and all of them had on makeup–I really like the way the eyeliner looks on their faces, it’s so pretty!

You know, it’s so weird because I feel like every Asian woman I walk past smells exactly like my mom; the women here wear a rich and sweet perfume and it makes me want to sniff their neck every time I smell them walk by me. :)

I’ve noticed that the Asian people don’t eat the same things that the people in the U.S.A. eat, maybe this is why they are shorter? Well, it’s good because this means that now I have more things that I can see and look through. For example, my aunt and I are staying in a guest house and I can look through the peephole perfectly fine here, but in America I had to stand on a stack of chairs to see who was knocking on the door!

I also love how the people in Chiang Mai drive on the right side of their cars because it’s just so different from how the people in the U.S.A. drive. And, there are so many people driving motorbikes that you can’t even count them all driving by! (Oh, and I almost got hit by one because it came around the corner really fast and from the other direction and so I didn’t see it.)

Overall, I think Thailand is going pretty well for me. I’m still getting used to things and so I think there are still many more adventures to come…

I've got heart and soul, and stories waiting to be told. In 2011, I first left the US and was homeschooled from Southeast Asia by my aunt for 6+ months. Now, I travel with her in the summers and share my stories here. I've visited 7+ countries and counting! "Wherever you go, go with all your heart" — Confuscious
