Witness to an unexciting coup

So I know this guy Paul. He's starting a new job training Burmese activists. (At the moment, Burma is not a happy place.) His work will be based in northern Thailand.

As such, on Monday he flew into Bangkok.

Then, on Tuesday, there was a coup.

I'm sure this was no coincidence. I was expecting him to trigger a coup in Burma, but perhaps he got confused.

He says the coup is pretty uninteresting in his neighbourhood, and might well stay that way, but I'll be watching his blog anyways.
