    one side (yellow) accuses ex-democratically elected man (and who ever connected to him) as corrupted.

    another side (red) objects current prime minister as he was appointed, not elected.

    in the end the country loses this is more of an internal problem and not much danger for tourists , only nuisance if you were to wonder into the protested street.

    my advice : don't wear yellow or red shirt when you are there.

    which makes me want to give some of these people a slap and remind them " you don't appreciate what you had, until it is gone"
    And the whole partition thing hasn't really worked for India-Pakistan. Another one of those good ideas that make sense until people become involved.

    ... like communism. in theory it should be better for the people... but in practice human nature is difficult to predict.

    But it seems that wat thailand had or has is not working with the personalities involved, so maybe it is time for something new?
