When I was travelling through Southeast Asia there was this weird thing where people kept giving me tee shirts. Or I’d go through a market meaning to buy something local and hand made and I’d get a funny shirt with like a monkey on it.
It doesn’t sound like much of a problem. Getting gifts and finding funny gems was always a treat. But I was backpacking, and my space was limited. Yet at the height of this phenomenon, I had like 20 tee shirts? and two pairs of pants?
I gave away what I could but it was still a weird thing to look into your backpack and only have tee shirts looking back at you!
