Damage and burning along Rama IV, BangkokDamage and burning along Rama IV, Bangkok

Yesterday was relatively quiet, at least in my area, but this was the scene five minutes' walk away, along Rama IV. The smoke is from burning tires, and was accompanied by explosions (mostly harmless but very large rockets fired by the protesters) virtually every 20 seconds. A surreal and frightening scene.
