Tack had some business to attend to at City Hall (government offices) a couple of weeks back and snapped these pics while there. City Hall has been heavily guarded against any red shirt demos and attacks since the protests began in Bangkok. Also on the day she was there some of the local elephant camps  brought their elephants to City Hall to protest against the red shirt protest which was scaring all the tourists away and ruining their business!!! Not only this their main argument was that if the tourists  didn’t return soon then they can not afford to feed the elephants and they will starve!
