Norwegian Guy at Dali Bar

Norwegian Guy at Dali Bar, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

In Bangkok for a week, he’s an engineer specializing in mobile phone towers.  He comes out once every 3 months to run training seminars.  Back in Oslo, it’s minus ten degrees and the sidewalks are full of snow.  In Bangkok, the hot night air’s fragrant with the smells of Southeast Asia.  He’s staying at the Novotel on Soi 33. Every night, he wanders into Dali Bar to drink beer and flirt with the girls, mostly young and beautiful, dazzling smiles and soft dark skin.  If not for his wife and two kids back in Norway, he would fall in love and never go back.
