Thanks for your thoughts, Ian.

I heard the news in the Netherlands where i have these days with my family and my thai fiancee.

Reading on the different (local) forums i have the impression it is not a big attack, but will definately bring the economy into a new low for a while.

Also ,it is probably not religion related, except for those who only believe in MONEY..... there were many guys in the last government that lost a lot of that after the coup.

I cannot say what will happen next, only that i will return to Thailand next week and have no great worries yet.
I just hope that the foreign productions that were planning to shoot in Thailand this new year will not be scared away.......

Best wishes to all!

Take care
