I finally got my first, “Fish Foot Massage.” You place your feet in a tank and tiny fish eat away at the dead skin. I wasn’t ready for a full body or even a foot massage when I first arrived. I was (and still am) detoxing from … the alienation of our American culture …

With technology, the “feel” of being divided against self and others increases. Look at our current politics. It’s hilariously horrible to both observe and swim through. I guess its designed to be so. But enough about politics.

All this gives me insight on why so many immigrants love the U.S. while many of us are stressed and depressed by American life. It’s so different from what they grew up with. This is why I’m LOVING Thailand so much … it’s that .. different planet kind of feeling.
