    And the scarier part is..... in Hua Hin (and I think other places as well) bombs were set off with a second one shortly after the first - so people who had come to help were then subject to injury/death :(
    One of the bombs was placed near the clock tower - which happens to be where almost all the shuttle buses from the hotels drop off/pick up. the saving grace is that it was early in the morning before most of these shuttles start.
    Scary and sad indeed!

    As Richard Barrow (and others) have pointed out tourists are more at risk from traffic accidents, even elephants (a few tourists have been killed while riding, etc.) than terrorism in Thailand, even now.
    Although as we all know things can change.

    Very true but the odds will increase if the bombs go off in a tourist area such as the Erawan!
