Foreigners misunderstand Thailand. A night murder in Bangkok that never happened

Once I was a witness to a strange accident in the streets of Bangkok. I was riding a bus at night when I noticed a policeman was kindly asking passersby to refrain from crossing the street along the pedestrian bridge (overpass). I got a guess that something bad like a murder had happened on the bridge... Or was it an alleged bomb?...

I asked Nut what was exactly happening. He answered:

- Nothing so special.

Ok...

Thai people about Christianity: Gospel is a little chisel

N. Abraham McDonald, an American Christian missionary lived in Siam (Thailand) in the 1860s, about the Thais' attitude towards Christianity: 

There is scarcely any other field, in which modern missions have been established, where the introduction of the gospel has met with so little opposition as in Siam proper, and especially during the late reign, and so far during the present. It is equally just to say that there is scarcely any other field which has been so barren of results.
