Some say that Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa was a transvestite hooker from the streets near his studio, the mysterious smile reflecting both her own and Leonardo's sexual ambiguity.   In a world of reincarnation, Mona Lisa is alive and well in the Bangkok district called Patpong, whether as a wired Thai Ladyboy or beautiful and tender Isan bargirl named Wan Jai, who can say for sure.
