The problem areas are in the three southernmost provences but the insurgents have said they will move to tourist areas. They haven't yet but it's just a short bus or train ride away.
A couple of attacks on groups of farang in Bangkok, Phuket or other tourist area and the Thai's will lose billions. They don't seem to see it as possible. If it happens, look for a very bloody response from the government.
My family and some friends who keep up with events have wanted me to leave for some time. I want to try to wrap things up and try to stick it out for another 6 monts or so. Then I'll do a tour of all the surrounding countries and come back to beautiful SF.
The more I travel, the more I appreciate America and the San Francisco Bay Area in particular.
