Peter, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

In Amsterdam where Peter lives, things are pretty quiet and usually nice, plenty of beer, drugs, girls, good jobs and high pay.  He arrived in Bangkok this evening, non-stop from Europe, his first visit, his brain very busy trying to process the overwhelming and unfamiliar density spread out before him in the hot and humid Bangkok night.  Food stalls with fried bugs, sexy girls and ladyboys,  baby elephants, 300 pound Expats, multiple layers of music, millions of Thais, infinite piles of counterfeit goods and an apocalyptic level of non-stop noise and confusion. Pretty soon, Peter’s brain is going to stop.
