We came out of the shopping centre (which was number 10 in the guide book) straight into the middle of an anti corruption protest. We could hear all this singing and chanting and wondered what on earth was going on. The square below us filled up with people wearing white masks, and they slowly filled the space around us as well. The police were on one side of the road keeping a close eye.
|Luckily the police watched and the protest was 'peaceful'|
That was an exciting first day - temple worship - shopping - political protest!
