30th November, 2008

Today's weather;

It's very cloudy right now and the rain is (momentarily?) back. It drizzled a moment ago and there's a shower right now. Current temp at 7 am is 24.8C.

Yesterday was once more a dry day, that was three in a row, right? The sun even broke through a few times,although very weak. Max temp reached 29.3C.

In Bangkok it's still a stand off although the tension may worsen with pro-govt rally and after a bomb blast 47 are injured in explosion inside Government House.

Although I'm surprised that nothing has happened so far to stop the airport blockade, it could remain this way until at least Tuesday, when if everything is correct, a court ruling could dissolve the current PM Somchai's political party because of corruption. That would achieve PAD's goal of the current government being dissolved.

The selfishness of PAD leads also to a tourist arrivals drop by 50% next year, according to this article.

It's a sad situation where Thailand will end up as the looser.
