Sounding the "Everything's OK!" Alarm

You may have read that martial law was instituted in Thailand yesterday.  Thanks to folks who checked in with me and Tim... this is just to let everybody know that we are doing fine right now, so I am officially sounding the "Everything's OK" alarm, ala Homer Simpson:



We are essentially unaffected as far as our safety goes as of right now and are planning, as the U.S. government recommends, to "stay alert, exercise caution, and monitor media coverage... avoid areas where there are protest events, large gatherings, or security operations and follow the instructions of Thai authorities."

We'll keep ya posted.

On a lighter note, apparently the Thai hashtag for "handsome soldiers" is trending right now.  So you know things are not that bad.


UPDATE, 5/22/2014, 6 pm Bangkok time: 

It's officially a military coup.  And we are officially still fine.
