Well, it continues to be quiet an experience. I have interviewed two Red Shirt leaders and I am waiting to see if one of the interviews will be published by a certain website. Tomorrow I’m going to go to the “multi-color” rally.
Today I started videotaping and I plan on loading up this video when I get the proper cable. With this new mac they’ve changed the fire wire ports. I saw a famous war photographer today James Nachtwey . He very much looked the part, actually he didn’t look like a typical photo journalist that I have seen here with the customary long hair, slovenly dressed. He looked like a thin Blake Carrington with an aristocratic air about him oozing self importance. Later when it got a bit crazy and the crowd started to yell I ran over to ask a Thai person what was the matter and then walked over to him and suggested that he not wear a dark shirt and he looked at me like I was his butler and asked, “Who are you?”
I tell everyone I meet that these soldiers are never going to come so long as there is a critical mass of protesters present. The Reds Shirts nod and smile in agreement when I say this. They know the game. It’s a waiting game at this point.
It’s awful what the government is doing portraying these protesters as wanting to overthrow the monarchy.
