The View from Thailand: 1

The View from Thailand1

A certain strangeness about things in Thailand can make life interesting for the expat.

For example, obesity is an epidemic in western countries. But it has arrived in Thailand as well.

Sadly, obese little butterballs are everywhere. Like in the west, soda is one of the main culprits.

But one element of the growing obesity problem in Thailand leaves many expats shaking their heads.

Often, advertisements for soda and other fat-inducing products feature fat children.

Either a collective and stunning lack of self-awareness, or a refreshing honesty.
