state of emergency in pattaya
Well here we are in Pattaya, Thailand and the Thai government has declared a state of emergency here because of the political demonstrations between the red shirts and the yellow shirts. Pattaya has basically been shut down and although Henry and I are a kilomtre or two away there has been loads of helicopters flying overhead taking all the ASEAN leaders away from the postponed ASEAN conference and a curfew has been declared. Lucky for us that we are staying at my brother's place and a little out of the way. Lets hope its resolved quickly and that the airport isnt closed like a couple of weeks ago.
