Security Guard at Jim Thompson House

A friendly security guard poses before the spirit house at the Jim Thompson house. The Jim Thompson is now a museum. It was still fairly early in the morning, hence the still very fresh flowers on the spirit house. The entrance fee to the house entitles you to a tour of the house conducted by the most charming Thai maidens on the planet. You take your batch number and await your turn. Our girl on the day told us it was her last day on the job though. You can take pictures freely around the gardens, and of the house itself from the outside. Photography inside the Jim Thompson house during the tour of it is strictly prohibited. (Bangkok, Thailand, Oct. 2008)
