Religion, election, Nicole Kidman
The streets have been full of demonstrations for several weeks. Yesterday, a campaign truck blasting political K-Pop woke me at 6, and the background buzz of amplified music filtered through the office windows all day. The major street a few hundred metres away was blocked with a wall of tuk-tuks, all with huge loudspeakers lined up in a row. Slow convoys of thirty trucks wind through the streets, each carrying 50 or 60 people cheering and waving flags, their free caps all matching.
It's all pretty light hearted. At least it seems so.
Everyone knows who will win anyway.
