Chaos in Bangkok - But still selling fruit

My husbands Uncle lives in Thailand for parts of the year with his wife who is from the area.  They always send wonderful photos and enjoy their time in Thailand.  He is there now and visited Bangkok yesterday in the midst of the current protests. His alarming moment turns to humor due to his small Thai vocabulary.

"Went to Bangkok yesterday to pick up some clothes, and the streets were empty except soldiers, black smoke was visable from a couple locations, and while getting my stuff I heard a loud speaker comming down the street on the roof of a truck, and quickly asked my wife "what's happening?" and she said "they are selling Rambutan (fruit)" " ShareThis
