Bangkok Lockdown Day 7

Category: Thaism

Very soon I’m gonna lose count on the number of days we have been greatly “inconvenienced”, and by then I really do hope that I have long stopped counting these dreadful days because it will finally be over.

Things started out relatively calm again this morning. So calm that we began to think that we could just be going back home this time tomorrow. Unfortunately, that was not to be the case as the government has extended curfew for 3 more days in Bangkok soon enough. More news came in with things started being pretty unstable again with reports of loud bangs heard in Ratchprasong area, explosion heard in Lumpini park area, fire bomb elements found in container between Ploenchit and Chidlom intersections that apparently ca unleash a powerful blast within 100m radius as well as reports coming in of heightened activity at Ratchprasong again as troops scan for snipers along roof tops.

Sometime in the early evening, I got a text message informing me that there would be more trouble brewing tonight around the area where we live.

The possibility of being able to go home tomorrow looked bleak …
