No Protest on This Street

There have been weeks of protests and violence in Bangkok and on the TV and people have been injured, even some lives lost, but we haven't seen any of it. I think that no place in Bangkok other than the area around the Parliament Building has had any disruption.

A major festival, the Vegetarian Festival, has been going on at the same time and drawing bigger crowds. On the last night of the festival we came across this street scene. At 11:00PM the crowds were arriving and there was music and food and many small alters and other Buddhist displays. It looked like a street fair and we could hear the music and drums on into the morning, but by daylight it was all gone and the street was completely clean.
