    Yeah, read it here - http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/asiapc...ing/index.html

    Will be in Bangkok later today. Hope to get some shots of the situation there - using a PNS. Am in the north-east of the country now. It is calm here, I can't feel that a coup happened.

    nowadays wealth in more in the form of electrons instead of physical notes ... he and his family should hv no problem accessing the money tt is overseas, in swiss accounts ... unless the new govt starts to call swiss banks ... and it is not a guarantee way of getting his money ...

    Thaksin's wife dropped by Singapore en-route to London. Thaksin himself is in London now, might seek asylum there. (forgot which local Thai newspaper that I read)

    been in thailand for 3 yrs now... but about 150km frm bkk. the coup hasn't affected anything out here in Saraburi. will be in BKK tomorrow morning... will post some pix. if you've got any friends/family here... don't think you need to worry much. pretty peaceful. only concerns is that the current military leaders are putting heaps of new 'laws' that seem a little unreasonable.
