Post-Protest

So from what I hear the protestors have dispersed now here in Bangkok. It was pretty bizarre to feel safe over here in my part of town, and then see very aggressive, unpredictable images of the city live on CNN.

There were a few calm protestors two blocks away from where I live, and since it has been the Thai new year (Songkran) there has also been a 3-day countrywide waterfight going on in addition to the protests.

People everywhere have squirt guns, and buckets of water and you can’t walk anywhere without ending up wet.

People also ride around in pick-up trucks and motorbikes to soak people. Rachel and I both got soaked while on motorbikes. There’s very little pity.

Love to you all,
Paige
