No Reds Allowed in Temple

There are unspoken rules at temples, as tourist we do not know. Okay some English signs that states dress decent we can read, but it is the Thai written ones that we often are oblivious to. There was a temple I visited, but how in the world am I suppose to know red is a color not allowed and that goes for red underwear too. It offends the deities and no, this is not politically linked. It gets more interesting as the elderly Thais were advising the girls in the group. Menstruation, color red, cannot go in too. Well I guess if for some reasons your vagina turns into a penis after a week of visiting a temple, you know you must have missed a sign written in Thai. Ignorance is not an excuse in the deities eyes. No worries though, there are many hospitals in Thailand that offers sex change operations.
