Thailand has a colour problem! If you follow international news in the last couple of years, you might be familiar with the social and political situation in my country. It has been a turbulent time. Do you know that many people in my country wear particular colour clothing based on their political stance? We have red shirts, yellow shirts, navy blue shirts, baby blue shirts, white shirts, and green shirts. Very often these shirts represent viewpoints that seem irreconcilable. The country has been in one of its most tumultuous times. The colour problem is so bad that I have a section in my closet dedicated to shirts with colours I can no longer wear outside my home. Thailand is so divided that at various times over the past year or so there were feelings that civil war or a military coup could be imminent.
