“Looming” Photograph

This is a typical view many Thai people have of westerners who are often much taller and thereby tend to “loom”. This is simply a factor of height but an inferiority complex would be an understandable result. However, particularly in urban areas, this is changing with diet and there are many Thai teenagers who now loom over me. Well, okay, as I’m only 170cm (5’7”) tall this isn’t saying much but the fact is that the Thai population is starting to catch up height-wise.
