the effects of the coup in Bangkok on my family there

  1. nephew, upon hearing that the news channels were shut down, concerned that the Cartoon Network might be shut down
  2. children get day off school
  3. next door neighbour child thinks that it’s because “all the teachers have been shot”
  4. sister and her husband forced to go to coffee shop down the road, because local coffee shop is shut
  5. 6 soldiers with M16s spotted at pool next to said coffee shop

I do know from my time in Colombia that it's not much fun seeing lots of gun-wielding soldiers on the streets, so let's hope it all settles down soon.
