The military is present in the city.
The red shirt protests continue to cause havoc in Thailand, seriously damaging he country's reputation.
The protests are inconveniencing much of the Bangkok populace, putting some out of business, many out of work and the whole debacle has changed the vibe in Bangkok.
I can't count how many times I have been asked by fellow foreigners whether I am yellow or red. I am neither. Many, many people are fed up with both of these groups and you can count me in that number.
I'm sorry to say that the whole protest situation shows no sign of ending any time soon, in fact I would go as far to say that the red shirted protesters seem more settled and more entrenched - and the odds of them being forced out by the authorities is much less likely than it was say a week ago.
It really looks like this could go on and on and on...
