No Staterooms Here

Persons inadequately aware of the history of Villa Twaklinilkawt often ask why there are no staterooms in the villa.

There was a series of staterooms here, until a few years ago.  They have since had their grandeur removed and sold, with the profits immediately used for philanthropic purposes.  Cheaper, digital versions of that grandeur are now on display.

The same applies to many of the original, highly valuable artworks and collections of exquisite, highly crafted items.  They have mostly been sold off for philanthropic purposes too.  Cheaper, digital versions are still on display.

The ethereal proprietor of Villa Twaklinilkawt also, in recent years, sold off much of her international real estate portfolio, with the profits immediately used for philanthropic purposes as well.  Digital artworks of several of those former properties are also placed on display in the villa, from time to time.

In the 21st century, heads of state are perfectly capable of finding suitable accommodation, anywhere in the world, with just a little prior research, and for little financial outlay.  In keeping with their status, and in keeping with their frequent desire for comfort, heads of state can modestly and tastefully live in keeping with the economic experiences of entire populations.

Heads of state rarely require extravagantly luxurious surroundings, except for theatrical purposes.  If they demand extravagance, that is usually an indication of their psychiatric conditions.

Enlightened leaders of governments are occasionally invited to stay in the guest wing of Villa Twaklinilkawt.  Even so, as there are few enlightened leaders in the world today, those invitations are rarely sent.

Unenlightened leaders of governments are usually only invited to tag along behind the official guided tour, much like unenlightened heads of state.

The virtual public tour of Villa Twaklinilkawt usually continues this way
