    Been watching on TV. Says 80 dead/250 wounded but then I just heard 900 wounded. Not sure if she misspoke or if that's the current info.

    Looks like the 80 number is accurate. It seems to be close to what most of the stations are reporting. One station just said there may be one of the terrorists still hiding in the Taj Mahal Hotel. That's all so sad.

    Just woke up watching the news and looks like it's still going on.

    "Chatted to the Mondera team earlier today, they are all fine, several hundred miles away from the incident. Shocking stuff."

    Was watching what's happening over there as well, with the protesters shutting down the airports.

    Yea our political joys have taken a turn for the interesting with the "Yellow Team" deciding to storm both airports in Bangkok as part of their plan to try and get the Prime Minister to resign. All for the good of the country of course. So now we have a large number of tourists trapped here, incoming tourists cancelling, business travellers and conventions going elsewhere and the nig hit will be that all those folks who were thinking of coming to Thailand for Christmas will now go elsewhere, meaning all those small businesses, cafes, dive shops, street vendors and so on that depend on these tourists will have no revenue for 2 months at the time of year when business should be at it's best. Meanwhile the nation continues to carry on as usual, no change there, though the Government are thinking of wondering about maybe getting the Yellow team out of the airport.... while the Red Team say that if the Yellow Team don't vacate the airport then they'll go in and clean them out... now the Prime Minister is probably thinking "if I let the red and yellow teams fight it out, then I can send the Police in after the show down to clean up what ever left, thereby avoiding any screams of "foul" by either team due to Police enforcing the law (can't have people enforcing the law, that would be unfair). Meanwhile the Army, that said they would not ever have a coup again is considering another coup to clean out everyone and take over.. until a new election can be set up....

    And all that while we await the effects of the credit crunch around the world to hit. Manufacturers and exporters here are still fulifilling final Q4 orders, but I have heard from friends that Q1 is a horror story waiting to happen as masses of orders have been cancelled and no one is buying.

    So all in all, we're expecting a rather sharp fall in the Thai Baht, if it decides to follow any logic, but Thailand does have rather large cash reserves which keeps the Baht stable no matter what else is going on... confused, don't care, better things to do... yea that's the opinion of those not in the Red, Yellow, Police or Army teams too

    For any of us who tend to forget, this kind of tragedy is a stark reminder that terrorism continues to be a very real threat in our world. My thoughts and prayers go to those who are in the middle of all of this.
