A little bit sad...

...someone in the office here in India asked another local co-worker where I was from, and could not believe I am American. Why you ask? This person could not believe someone from the US is so thin. Granted, I am unusually slim, but says a little about US culture and how we are perceived.

Most people in India are a healthy size. This may be due to the fact that most people are vegetarian, but probably partly due to not being served huge portions and expected to finish them?
