Cowboys

When has the term "Cowboys" take on a different meaning? When I was with Thailand with my wife, I learnt of the place called 'Soi Cowboys' which is really a seedy place in Thailand. Some tourists visit Thailand mainly to catch these seedy places of interests in Thailand.

Just some days ago, I read of the news that there exist a group of "Cowboys' in Bali. As I did not know the term then, I thought that these are real cowboys, those you see on Western movies,
big muscular guys wearing a jungle hat and riding on horses, always doing some heroic acts and saving damsels in distress.

It shocked me to read that these Indonesian Cowboys are infact muscular gigolos! The news reported that some ladies actually flock to the beaches of Bali for these cowboys.

With this era, the image of Cowboys has since been tarnished!
