The big red shirt rally is going to happen this weekend. The plan is to have protesters from throughout the country to converge on Bangkok starting on Friday and Saturday for a huge rally on Sunday. In addition to protesting downtown, they will also muster strength not too far away from here. There are a bunch of government offices on Chaeng Wattana Road that will be the subject of protests.
Tim had planned on taking the kids to Pattaya for the long weekend. Parent teacher conferences for the elementary school are Thursday and Friday, but ours will be complete by 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning. That effectively leads the kids with a four day weekend. There are warnings of major delays and disruption of traffic, so Tim decided to call off the trip.
