MTM: Shangrila Part 2

Aloha! Welcome to Shangrila!
Click on photos to enlargeWhat a view! Yes, that's Diamond Head on the right.




Don't YOU have a waterfall on your lawn?



No one swims here now.


Welcome back to Doris Duke's Hawaii home, Shangrila. It is a treasure chest of Islamic art and culture, now operated by the Honolulu Academy of Arts. You may visit the home if you visit us here in Honolulu. Check their website: www.shangrilahawaii.org
And if you haven't seen it, scroll down to Part 1 below.

I was just watching the movie Bernard and Doris not long ago. So interesting to see this. I really hope she was able to enjoy herself there, that pool is amazing!

What an amazing place! Have you been to Hearst Castle along the California coast north of Santa Barbara? No one lives there either... Thanks for sharing!
