Some cool tees for the lady. There was a nice shop in the shopping mall close to the hotel, where Vanja found some clothes. She’s always told me how difficult it can be for women to shop clothes since the sizes can vary so much, depending on the brand. This time I got to see this for myself.. she shopped clothes there and most of them in size Medium, but one t-shirt had to be bought in Small, and one had to be bought in Large. The photo below displays a t-shirt size Small (to the left) and the one to the right is Large (and it’s even smaller than the Small one! Yikes). I’ve experienced some slight differences in clothing sizes for men too (especially when I shop online), but not anything like this. Makes you wonder why the heck a certain size can’t have a universal standard.

And we found a big Totoro pillow in an anime shop in the mall by the hotel! We just had to bring him home with us, of course.
