All is well

For those of you who've seen the news about Bangkok - yes there's a serious political situation going on, it's all over the news here. Fortunately there haven't been any (or rather, I haven't seen any) protests up in Chiang Mai where I am (300 miles away). I've talked to people who lived here through the last (bloodless) coup and I've been assured that I'm about as safe as can be here. I am registered with the US consulate and have been checking their travel alerts daily. In the unlikely event that situation turns unsafe, I'll do as they advise.

I've also heard that comparatively speaking, the protests have been big but not scary big.

Not especially scary at all. I think the Thai people are generally more peaceful than say Americans.
