Summertime and the livin’ is easy ...

- +

It’s summer and what better time to visit France, especially a gorgeous city like Paris. The weather forecast for the French capital for July 26 is: partly sunny, warm and humid. Temperatures should be between 19 and 30 degrees Celsius. 

For some Thais, there could be no better time than July 26 to enjoy the City of Light. A special birthday party will be thrown on that day, and it will be hugely popular among those who stand on the opposite side of the National Council for Peace and Order.

When next Saturday comes around, Thaksin Shinawatra will turn 65. This birthday party will be yet another that the deposed prime minister has had to celebrate anywhere but at home. The last time he did that was when he turned 57 in 2006 — just two months before tanks and troops paraded through the streets of Bangkok and changed his life forever.
