From Andrew Drummond, Bangkok, November 6th
For more suggestion, please feel free to give us."
Seems these plans are much more sophisticated than mine which is to leap aboard my floating sala with a several crates of beer, a bottle of La Phroaig, or Old Pulteney, several large flagons of water, plus food, with fridge, TV, fans, music etc. connected to the Thai national grid via overhead wiring.
My wife however says she is taking the kids to the eastern seaboard to loot the supermarket shelves there at the same time - a current complaint by locals down in Chonburi.
Picture: The floating sala. Lazy shot from bedroom window. My lake is now up at record level and another foot or so will be over the lawn or part of it. Another 2 ft and the cricket pitch is done. When it gets to 1.5 metres my wife is 'outta here'.
Footnote: Just done a live two-way with Sky News to say most of Bangkok city centre is still dry but serious flooding to north and west. But many people have left due to warnings. Authorities may now be getting a grip on situation. Interesting to see what is coming out of people's houses, green mambas, lions tigers etc.
