We're off to Sri Lanka tomorrow to see some friends during the National Day and Eid holidays here.
We'll have good fun, but we were supposed to be going to Thailand. Mrs Saul has been wanting to go there for a long time - everything was booked and paid for, but then the current group of protestors decided to destroy the lifeblood of their economy by occupying the airports.
I know nothing about Thai politics, but I find it odd that a group described by the BBC as a mix of middle class businessmen and monarchists would be the type of people to be doing this kind of thing.
I feel sorry for everyone trapped in Bangkok's airports, but even more sorry for the hundreds of tourist related businesses who'll love millions over the coming months as tourists go to safer destinations.
