My friend Alf Erickson, who splits his time between Bangkok and Ft. Lauderdale, is back in Thailand and updating his blog with a bird’s eye view of the political unrest. Go check it out. (WARNING: although this particular link is SFW he does from time to time post things that are definitely NSFW.) He has been writing this online journal since the mid-90’s so it’s a treasure trove of his world travels, and his life in Thailand. I heartily recommend you make this part of your daily read. He updates once a day so he won’t overwhelm your reader.
