Today's protests turned ugly here in Bangkok, with the current tally of injured at approximately 700, and 10-11 dead (depending on your news source) UPDATE: BBC now reporting 20 dead, including a Japanese reporter, and close to 850 injured. I didn't plan to go anywhere near the protests today - most of the redshirts were amassed around Siam Square and the major commercial malls - but my seemingly innocuous plans of spending time with my friend Anjie were derailed when we found ourselves smack in the middle of protests again. With me was my friend Sean, who had come to the Khao San area to try and find his birthday present to himself: a guitar. We each got a little more than we bargained for.
