In this Aug. 28, 2015, photo, Rudee Jiamjairat, 57, a vendor who sells flowers outside the Erawan Shrine -- the scene of a bombing two weeks ago -- is interviewed by the Associated Press in Bangkok, Thailand. "We're not afraid. We believe the spirit of the shrine will protect us," said Rudee. "When we see people carrying backpacks we tell each other to keep an eye on them. If anyone is standing around here for too long, I tell the security guard and he tells them to leave." On the surface, the bustling city of food vendors, traffic jams and raucous nightlife is back to normal, two weeks after the Erawan Shrine bombing. But many feel a new and gnawing sense of fear and insecurity. (AP Photo/Jocelyn Gecker)
