I've been there before. It looks like some crazy Mary westerner did that site for them. It's not really an accurate description. It's just a nice place. It's very lush. There's a courtyard bar that's just so tropical and nice. Al; the nookie happens in the cubicals. The Thai have this modesty thing. Like in the locker room they'll put on the towel before they pull their pants down. Also, if they drop the towel to get in the jacuzi (sp?), they'll cover their weenies while they step in.
Last year I fooled around with this guy and then, the next day, I saw him in the paper. He's the big gay avant garde artist...probably the only one in the country. That's not a big thing here. Why do people like up always find eachother, even if we're just in a towel.
I've been too busy compulsively fabric shopping. I know I come home with nice outfits, but getting it together is hard work. Today I shopped in the Indian Market. It's very hot crowded and I the minute I buy anything bulky I get stuck carrying around. It's physically uncomfortable but soooo fascinating. This city is full of markets that are all so different from eachother. This one, like the others, is a never ending maze of mysterious shops.
Indian people here speak perfect English so it's very easy to navigate. I found a gorgeous little sari shop and I went nuts. They're always nice if I show them a drag photo and tell them it's for me.
-a Green skirt with a sari attached trimmed in gold sequins
-Same in pink
-A whole matching red ensemble consisting of a top, wide pants with a drapey skirt thing that goes over it and a little scarf thing, trimmed in gold sequins.
-The same thing in orange.
-4 sheer red net things with gold sequiny things all over them. I might have something made from it.
-a silly looking male crown thing... you'd have to see it.
-a glitzy little hair thing...again, you'd have to see it.
Not bad. Some label fag would pay that for Diesel jeans. Still...do I really need four sari outfits? Yes, I do.
I also got some silly pink fabric with gold lame flowers to have a lady-suit made. And I got...you don't need to hear all this.
To make up for all of this impulse spending I'm eating all of my meals in the cheap outdoor places.
Hey, here ar sites for the big drag shows I talked about last year. I want to try to go again. They're in another town;ALCAZAR ABARETTIFFANY CABARET
