ON THE 15TH WE LEFT IN THE MORNING FOR OUR EVENING FLIGHT TO BANGKOK BECAUSE OF MANY ROADS BEING CLOSED DUE TO THE BISHWA-IJTEMA which is held in Tongi North of the of the airport.  When we told the police we were going to the airport they let us pass through the barricade.  There were many people walkingt in the direction of the airport.  Near there were van garis trying to get passengers to go on to the Ijtema.
