Snapshot

I thought I might do another post for the Daily Post’s prompt of the day. Today’s is called ‘Snapshot Stories‘ and here’s the challenge…

Open the first photo album you can find — real or virtual, your call — and stop at the first picture of yourself you see there . Tell us the story of that photo.

I don’t have many pictures of me. I don’t really like to have my picture taken. I just don’t feel like I look. I don’t like to be reminded of how I really do look. I feel bad about my weight and how I look. So, I usually avoid having my picture taken.

 

In the photo above, I was on a trip to Thailand and was spending a few days in Chang Mai. I took a day trip with a group of people to visit the Hill Tribes. I had my picture taken with some of the ‘Longnecks’ in their village. I think this was about the only picture of me for that whole trip. I spent 3-4 weeks over there that trip. Had a blast!

PS-the featured image is from the same day, later on, at another village.

    • I wish I could remember better, but that was a few years ago. I don’t really remember how many bands I had on or how they figure out when to add a new one. They told us that the bands force the bones to grow longer. They don’t just wear them on their neck, they also wear them on their arms and legs. The one I was wearing had an opening in the back. If I remember right, the ones they wear, they put them on the same way, they had an opening in the back. Then they fuse them together. I could be wrong! They told us that the original purpose was to protect the women from being dragged off by tigers. (There are no tigers anymore, so I don’t know why they continue, they wouldn’t really answer that. Maybe just to keep the tourists coming to see them?). We didn’t see any men there, I don’t think the men wear them. This village was a refugee village in Thailand, the people came over from Laos and Cambodia from war. Still in Thailand, the government helps them.
