We went to one of the major tourist stops in Bangkok, the Jim Thompson House. It was built by a British architect who started the large scale trade in Thai silk. The house and gardens were absolutely gorgeous and the stories about the man and the company were interesting. It was well worth the stop. There were no pictures allowed inside so there aren’t many pictures I got of the house. There was also an exhibit with a Greek bane curated by a Japanese man on the nature of the fabric industry displayed in the form of interpretive fabric art. That part wasn’t nearly as interesting.
