Thida and I were at the market on Saturday, making our epic purchases for the community. We stopped in at a small pharmacy to get some medicine for an older woman who lives near Thida. She has chronic leg pain and asked for some help.
We made our purchases while Thida and I conversed in Burmese about what she needed and how much it would cost. As we started to walk away, the woman noted, “Wow. You look so much like a white woman.” To which Thida incredulously replied, “She IS a white woman!” 😂
To the woman’s credit, I had my mask on, which covers my nose, and I think my nose would give me away.
…Although I would also think my curly brown hair and light skin would have, so…Wow. I think we both left in awe. 😆
