Johanna, while my country was surprised and frightened by the shocking news. I was in the pub, dancing like nothing happened. Shame on me, i could be the last person in the country who were just surprised.
I was actually there in June. Rather than tanks, there was about a million Thai people celebrating the King's anniversary on the throne. A beautiful site to see! Talked to friends in Thailand and no one even knew that happened until they watched the news. Weird..
