Friday Foto - April 9, 2010
It's early in the wee hours of Friday on this side of the world, so it's officially Friday Foto time. We were in Bangkok for a day after the beach getting ready to hop a bus to Ubon for Songkran and inevitably ran into some Red Shirts in the main transportation hub, Victory Monument. You see this often here, as the parents come from far away to join the protests, they have to bring their little kids and babies with them...Why not dress them up in red and have them join the cause. This guy is obviously not fully dressed in his protest colors, but he's halfway there.The Prime Minister has once again issued an emergency decree putting into effect a state of emergency and putting some restrictions on gatherings and even some Red Shirt supporting radio and television outlets...can you say censorship? The State of Emergency should be called off by next weeks Songkran Festival, one of the more important holidays here in Thailand.
