We got off the Orient Express in Bangkok, Thailand. Unfortunately there are riots going on here so we can't do everything that we wanted to. Right now a group of people called the red shirts are protesting the government of Thailand. Another group of people wearing yellow (the color of Thailand's King Rama 9) are protesting the protesters...so there is a lot of craziness going on here. The government said that they will not give in to the demands of the red shirts and the king is sick in the hospital, so things may be crazy for a while! While we were taking the sky train to the weekend markets we saw and heard the protesters...YIKES! We did get to take a dinner cruise on the river though so we saw the sights of Bangkok at night!
