Tony at Spasso

Tony at Spasso, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

Spasso’s at the Erawan, one of Bangkok’s top hotels.  The cheapest room’s 200 dollars a night, a month’s salary for the average Thai. For Tony, it’s not worth thinking about, he makes a million dollars a year plus stock options. He always stays at there. He likes the location and at the end of a long day of tough negotiations, Spasso is only a step away.  It’s stylish and deluxe, Tony’s kind of place.  A lot of the guys are hi-income types, from all over the world. The band rocks and the Thai girls look like fashion models.  Smiling, friendly, slim and sexy. They cost less than the room.
