Happy Constitution Day

Today is Constitution Day in Thailand… what’s that? Well, it’s the day that celebrates the advent of the regime of Constitutional Monarchy in Thailand, as opposed to absolute monarchy which was the case until until June 24, 1932. The change was brought about by a group called The People’s Party (Khana Rasdr), led by Luang Pradit Manudharm who was inspired by the concept of western democratic procedures. You can read more about it all here.

Although it has many effects and is important in many ways, it’s important to me for two reasons. You can’t drink and all the prostitutes that work opposite my condo get the night off.

Update: The prostitutes don’t appear to have the day off. Sigh. They did have Monday off, and I guess two days in a week is too much.
