Floating bath tub

Hi everyone! As you have no doubt seen on the news, the Thai MP (Yingluck) just approved the opening of the sluces which will lead water directly into Bangkok city. Pretty scary for a lot of people. There are so many canals in Bangkok (this was the predominant method of transport back in the day) and the belief is that opening these flood gates will divert the water through bkk and into the sea.

This has obviously caused heaps of flooding in other areas that were not prepared. We drove around Thong Lor today to look for houses to rent and some people have literally built brick Walls across their drive ways!

The first pick shows no heavy duty tape left in stores as people attempt to wrap precious items. The other two are taken by a colleague of mine over his wall. It show his street flooded and a man floating by in a bath tub.
