We live in Jomtien and often go to the beach there as it seems to be very popular with the Thais, as we see them swimming there a lot. Why do the Thai people wear clothes when they go into the sea? We don’t do that in America. Sometimes it looks like shipwreck survivors from the Titanic. Some Thais wear bikinis, but they are in the minority. I even see them going in wearing jeans! Why, Hillary please tell us.
Unless you are color blind, you will have noticed that Thais do not want to get a tan. Beach fun is OK, but not if it turns them “black”. Sitting in your deck chair, Thai people will point to your arms and say “White, not black,” pointing to their own arms.” Everybody wants to be what they are not. People with straight hair want it curly, the curly headed ones want it straight, naturally brown people want their skin white, and girls with no money want more spending power!
