Favorite Conversation of June

In an elevator in Chiang Mai with two Middle Eastern men

Middle Eastern Man: Where are you from?

My Little Brother: America

Ashley: Where are you from?

Middle Eastern Man: Afghanistan

Really Awkward Silence

Middle Eastern Man: Something unintelligible

Me: What?

Middle Eastern Man: We are in a war. We are fighting.

Uncomfortable Awkward Laughing

Me: Good thing we’re not fighting.

Doors open. Middle Eastern Men exit.

Haha guess your little bro needs to learn the most important rule while traveling: When people ask where you are from the answer is always "Canada".

Why was I not there for that? That's okay. I saw some guy ask a little hill tribe girl selling souveniers how much she cost. Awkward.
