Bangkok & My School Uniform

Today I wore my school uniform for the first time. I thought maybe I would blend in more. Instead, I seemed to garner more attention than ever.

As I walked back from school, people stared at me. And not just stared, they gaped slack-jawed or flat-out laughed. I made eye contact with one woman who nearly got in a car accident staring at me. 

It struck me as odd but not completely unusual for a freckled, Caucasian redhead in Asia. I even thought, ‘wow, I need to blog about this weird reaction I’m getting.’

Then a kind woman literally pulled her motorcycle out of traffic to clue me in: I spent the last hour wandering around Bangkok with my skirt tucked in my underwear!
