Bangkok: Coup!

Yes I know I promised that the last story would be my last posting about Bangkok, but how can I not mention the fact that, just a couple of weeks after our holiday, Thailand last night underwent a military coup and the Prime Minister was removed from power while out of the country visiting the United States.

From what I can gather it seems this caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin was hugely unpopular and suspected of numerous acts of corruption, and it also appears that the majority of Thai people support the action by the country's military chiefs.

Anyway, just want the record to show that I had nothing to do with it, and let's hope everything works out peacefully for this very special country and it's lovely people.
