Summer conversations

An exchange I never expected, which has happened twice in the last month:

“Renee, you are very red.”

“Uh, yeah. I was walking outside and I got sunburnt.”

“I turn brown in the summer.”

(sheepish) “Well, yeah, I tan too sometimes. If I use sunscreen.”

“Oh.”

PSA: The Mongolian summer sun is very, very bright.
