Chub Rub is something many of you have probably heard of but for those of you that haven't it is when you have friction from flesh rubbing on other flesh and causing chaffing. At home you usually only have to worry about it if you are a distance runner or something where you will have hours and hours of friction going on in the soft pink thigh flesh in the underwater drawer. Drastic measures are taken to avoid this. Fast forward to Thailand 2013 where a group of 8 Americans have skin disappearing off of their inner thighs faster than the speed of sound from miles of sojourning through the streets and ally ways of Bangkok.
The problem is greatly intensified here because the humidity is sooooo much greater causing your skin to be much more sticky. I can't even tell you how funny it is watching a guy trying to walk in a quarter squat position so as not to have his thighs come into contact as he walks, if you want to know what it looks like, try it.
We are now at Pattaya which will be home for most of our time here and enjoyed our first service time yesterday morning. At the meeting for service we were given a short lesson of a few Thai phrases, not just our 8 but the entire english group of about 35, WOW whoever takes on learning this language has my eternal undying respect. It was a brother who's first language was not Thai teaching a bunch of Russian and English speaking a Thai presentation. Lots o laughs.
