What's the difference between the words "hip" and "thigh"? They look synonyms but I guess there is some pitfall. Thanks!

Hip: one of the two parts on each side of your body between the top of your leg and your waist.
Thigh: the top part of your leg, between your knee and your hip.
The thigh is #11, which is all the part between #18 and #12 (the knee). If you only consider the sides of your body in the area indicated by the arrow #18, then those are the hips (one hip on each side of your body, two hips: right hip, left hip).
That's what I learned.
Anonymous:That is a great answer. Thanks. Now I know the difference between hips and thighs
