[10:47 P.M. Update: “The fires are still burning in Bangkok, things are pretty brazen; a lot of the crowds seem to support the Reds who slip in and out with impunity, This is civil war, people who are on different sides live in the same block. The elderly and children have gone to the Temples which have been declared sanctuaries by the Thai government, but at night the Red Shirt fighters use the temples has havens.”]

Central World burning. I slept outside of this mall a few nights ago in one of the black marble fountains surrounding it. (the water was turned off) Marble is a very uncomfortable material to sleep on.
