The Buffalo and the Butterfly
by Ray Derrick
A bittersweet story of love and heartbreak set in rural Thailand. Written as a childrens' story, it is based on a human relationship between an ageing foreign male, commonly called a ‘buffalo’, and a much younger local Thai female, commonly known as a ‘butterfly’.
Many ‘buffaloes’ find their ‘butterflies’ and live happily ever after.
However, sadly, some of them do not!
