UPDATE: I have now safely made it out of my area, and am staying north of the city centre near Lat Prao with a generous friend. Jumping into a cab while grenades went off around me and gunfire echoed in the street was an experience I will not forget anytime soon. I tipped my cabbie well. And it looks like I got out at a good time; tweets from those stuck in their buildings with no escape detailed the series of explosions, fires and gunshots that punctuated their afternoon. Below is a picture from Alessandro Ursic (a neighbour) of the intersection next to my place, at 4:30pm. Not good.
