Today I visited the home of Jim Thompson, an American silk entrepreneur who settled in Thailand after WWII. An architect by training, he developed a great interest in Thai silk textiles and was instrumental in the development of the export market for Thai silk. After he mysteriously disappeared in Malaysia in 1967, his home was turned into a museum.

Unfortunately photography inside of the home was not allowed, so I was only able to take some photos of the garden.
