    The Siege for Bangkok. The long walk home.

    On Friday night I went down to Rambuttri street for a night of Japanese food, Japanese beers and a few laughs with friends. I live on the other side of town at Silom so when going over there for drinks I always crash in a Guesthouse for the night and make my way home slowly the following day. Depending on how the night turns out to how slowly I go home. Anyway I only had about 25 beers so I decided to walk home and take pictures of the Protest zones on the way home. Between Rambuttri street and Silom road there are 3. Lets have a look EH. Actually just as well I did as they had pulled them all down today and relocated to Lumpini park which is a stones throw from my apartment. This is not a political thread but merely a walk around so don't bother writing " Sutheps " a tosser or " Thaksin " is corrupt as I don't give a toss either way. I'm only an expat here and always will be whatever or who ever is in Government. Lets kick it off with this pic.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    I always stay at the Four Sons Village. 350 Baht for a fan room and comfy bed. 650 Baht for the works. Great spot with the Jap restaurant directly underneath. A tad difficult walking up 6 flights of stairs when pissed up though.

    When on Rambuttri dare not pass up a cold beer at the Gecko Bar, some very interesting characters have graced those tables.

    Keep walking down Rambuttri heading up to cut a lap through Khao San Road which leads onto the first protest sight.

    This is Ratchadamnoen Avenue and traditionally ground zero for the protests. In the rear of the picture is Democracy Monument, it sits on the widest avenue in Thailand. Perfect for the protesters. A few weeks ago this street was full with a protesters city, they have now relocated to Lumini park in my area.Tomorrow this area will be reopened to normal traffic.

    Ive just walked up the avenue, walked past Democracy Monument and this is the scene. It all kicked off here one night, the protesters cut sick on these cars shooting and smashing them up. They have been left here as a symbolic sign of their cause.

    A walk through the war zone. This is the middle of Bangkok, the Royal palace is just down the Road. Info for the outsiders.

    The carnage continues on both sides off the road heading up towards the Klong San Saeb.

    All businesses are closed down on this street. The financial losses have been huge. Even the Lawyers office has done a bunk.
