In 2011, my wife and I went to Bangkok.
The city was flooded.
There were sandbags everywhere - even in the hospitals. It was feared that the hospitals would have to shut down, like other parts of Bangkok already had.
My doctor failed to keep his appointment because his house was under water. Another had moved out of her house and onto higher ground - an apartment.
It was widely believed that the government of Yingluck Shinawatra would collapse. It had dismally failed to forewarn citizens of the impending disaster. It was a massive case of government failure.
