Thank goodness McDonald’s can come to the rescue!

This is part of the message I got from the US Embassy today: “We remind U.S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence.  U.S. citizens are therefore urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations and to exercise caution in their movements around Bangkok or if within the vicinity of any demonstrations.”

Hmmm….so maybe I shouldn’t have been down there enjoying the atmosphere? I have to say, it was fun. Everyone was in good spirits and I didn’t see a single authority figure. Hopefully it stays that way tomorrow.
