    I'm guessing Muslims vs Buddhists as it happens often around those areas.

    But it is a Hindu shrine.

    Does it matter which non Muslim shrine? Muslims in that region got beefs with all of them.

    I was very close and felt the blast. I'm actually extremely lucky as my friend invited me to a jazz bar and I started walking away from the area just before it happened. If not, I would have been literally just above the blast zone on the skytrain.

    My friend was there and saw the aftermath. Bodyparts all over the place. Crazy stuff. Reporting 20+ dead (4+ foreigners) and 80+ injured.

    This month has been nuts. Almost stabbed to death, then narrowly escaping a bombing.

    Thailand has a Muslim population of about 5-10% and has been battling an insurgency in south Thailand for the past 50 or so years.

    It's Hindu but also used by Buddhists.

    My brother-in-law's girlfriend is somewhere in rural Thailand right now. She surely is safe, but it makes you feel weird still.

    Is your friend ok? What's the mood there?

    I'm stopping through Bangkok in October with my girlfriend to do Angkor in Cambodia/Phi Phi islands in Krabi.

    This annoys me. As the reason I've never been to Bali and it's so cheap from here is because of the Bali bombing.
