    Great shots of a sad situation. I know politics in Thailand is often complex and they tend to have moure coups than most. I just hope a solution is found before people get hurt or killed.

    Thanks for posting these I have several friends who like me are regular visitors to Thailand who will be interested in seeing them.
     
  5. @Bob, thanks for the comments.

    It was scary at times, but Thais are pretty interesting. You can be in the middle of a conflict, and they are still polite and greet you with a smile. Both sides have treated me with respect and care. It has been pretty cool.

    @John, the whole thing has been fascinating to me. The recent coup is the first time I have heard of a coup that ousted a democratically elected government for not being democratic enough. And, of course, this whole situation is colored by the fact that the army could, in fact, step in on either side.

    Maybe your friends would like to check out my flickr collection of shots from different days:
