Thai college students have a strange obsession with milk (we all have our theories on this). We live a block from Chiang Mai University, and there are more milk bars bordering campus than real bars. I did not drink milk in college. I went to university in Montana, followed by Oregon — both good beer drinkin’ states.
It’s Saturday night and we’re staying in (the IMMF group kept us out dancing and singing last night). So tonight I picked up a couple of movies and stopped by the 7-Eleven for beer, as well as milk for our morning coffee. It was all gone! Only a few sad bottles of fat-free, chocolate and strawberry milks remained. I did find regular milk in a box (the punch-a-straw-through-the-top kind), but it seems all those college kids are off drinking their bottles of milk tonight.
