Buddhist Monk Encounter

I've been told that women shouldn't really talk to the monks or sit next to them or even in the vicinity. However, today at the bus station, a taller of two monks keeps looking at me and trying to say something to me in Thai. I can't understand him so I ask if he speaks English. He speaks very little but manages to say, "where from". I say "America". They both nod their heads and say "ah". All I understand from the shorter one when they talk amongst each other is "big Thai". Why yes, yes I am.

The "big" saga continues...
