That's me. In this land of berry brown people, I stand out. That and my red lipstick of course.
It wasn't always that way. I too spent a significant amount of years trying to maintain that golden glow that comes from hours spent in the sun.
Now I can't think of anything more boring than lying on a sunlounger, waiting for that toasty shade of brown to appear.
As I write this, I can see that I am the rarity here in the hotel cafe. Most of the westerners here are wearing not too much, I on the other hand will be the one out and about wearing the longer sleeves, longer skirt, big floppy hat and carrying a sun brolly. My spot by the pool is invariably that one with the big umbrella (cooling cocktail in hand).
Yesterday I even bought a Kramer (Cambodian scarfy thing), so I can make sure my neck doesn't get burned. As we head for Siem Reap and all those magnificent temples, it will be Factor 30+ all the way.
