Military Coupe in Thailand

I just heard on NPR today that while the Thai Prime Minister was at a conference in New York today the military staged a coupe and has assumed control of the country. I don’t know much more than that at the time, but I have a feeling this may affect out travel plans…

I’ve been doing much better with the Japanese, though, I’m a bit worried that thinking up stuff away from the tapes will prove much more difficult. I have found that the little lonely planet phrase books we got are very helpful in just being able to see how some of the words are phonetically spelt and understanding some of the more grammatical sounds.
