JANUARY 5, 2010: On our first full day in Bangkok we headed off to Jim Thompson's house museum. Thompson was an American ex-pat and former spy who created a Thai silk company that introduced Thai silk into the mainstream of the American textile market. He also disappeared in 1967 and no one has a clue what happened to him. But his house and his company live on.
The house is an oasis of calm in a very busy part of Bangkok.
