That's what we LOVE about traveling...you always learn new things about the country you are in.
May 17th, 1992 is known as the start of Black May. From May 17th to May 20th, 200,000 protestors gathered in Bangkok to protest what they saw as an illegitimate government. Reports say there were 44 dead and over 500 injured when the army stepped in to stop the protests! You can see this mural near Khao San Road.
