Muay Thai

Day 3

Flying to Thailand to watch Muay Thai apparently did not help me to understand the game mechanics as much as I had wished for. Foreigners made up 90% of the spectators. I doubt we all cared who would be crowned as the winner. We tried our best to pronounce their names correctly without twisting our tongues. After a few attempts, we gave in and left our good intentions behind. We resolved to just memorizing the colour of their skimpy short when someone turned to us and asked, “who has just won?”
