Not sure what happened, but when we were in Bangkok over two weeks ago, there were barricades, razor barbed wire, concrete slabs blocking streets and riot police around the Government House. It was fairly quiet and peaceful though. Now there’s definitely something brewing. We noticed something was different a few days ago when our usual No. 16 bus that would take us to Siam Square from the guesthouse in Dusit just stopped turning up. We waited at the bus stop for nearly two hours before we decided to take a different bus. Turns out our usual bus route has been redirected due to the blocked streets around the Government house!…
Yes, it might be cool to have a photo of you posing with a gun, but it’s just a bit odd to get your girlfriend to follow you around taking photos as you grab different guns and pose on top of different war vehicles. Especially in the presence of people who were forced to join armies they did not understand, fight a war they did not understand, and who lost most family members in a war, when they were only children. Don’t Be That Guy.
