Photographer's Note

it's Jim Thompson's house,a typical thai house,in Bangkok's center.This is a teck house,built in a wonderful and luxuriant garden.
Jim Thompson was an American,borned in 1906.He was an agent of CIA and at the end of the war,he decided to live in Bangkok,where he falled in love with thai silk.He successed to sell the silk all over the world.
He had also built this house with some pieces of old thai houses.
Jim Thompson disappeared mysteriously in 1967 in Malaysia.It's possible to visit his delicious house.A great moment of pleasure!
