Jim Thompson

I went to Jim Thompson's traditional-style Thai home-turned-museum, but they wouldn't let me take pictures (don't even get me started on what I think about that type of policy).  Anyway, I most enjoyed  the art and antique collection.  Jim Thompson was a silk businessman who fell in love with Thailand and built this home before mysteriously disappearing in 1967.  I submit to you that he is currently working at a 7-11 in Chiang Mai.  Here are the few pictures I was able to sneak...
 the spirit house here...
