For something different we will now visit homes in foreign lands. this is Vinmanmek, the home that King Rama V (1868-1910) built in Thailand in 1900. It is the largest wood residential structure in the world. It is a truly magnificent place.
I think this might be my favorite house in Provincetown. No, it's not something I can decorate in the 18th C. Nor is it 6,000 sq ft way up high on a bluff with commanding views, but it' s classic in its lines and simplicity and right on the Bay. It has an interesting history:
Farewell to Israel. Last night our party of 16, including 7 of us who came for the wedding and stayed with our friends and friends of our hosts at the moshav, had dinner in Tel Aviv at an Arab fish restaurant with a view of the Mediterranean. As we finished, the sun was setting over the sea and the restaurant was filling up with Arab families waiting so they could eat dinner after fasting all day for Ramadan. The sun crossed the horizon as we left.
