We'd planned to tour the Botanical Gardens today, but on arrival found the entrance blocked by guards allowing in only some people, men in suits and their wives (legislators, we think), carefully screened as they entered the gate. Outside hundreds of trucks and moto-taxis lined the nearby streets, with people and police milling around, marking another day of protests. The sign says "In Support of the Legislative Work of the Senator". No clue to which Senator they refer. Streets were back to normal 3 hours later.
