  1. It sounds like the maintainence of the old wall was costing 9,000,000 baht per year, but maybe that meant to say the RESTORATION cost 9,000,000? All in all, sounds like a beneficial job… I would certainly like to hear more about the details of the criticism. Not a very informative piece of journalism…
