It's sort of exciting to be in a country in the troes of rebellion. I was living in Thailand during the last coup, with armed soldiers posted all over town, armored vehicles clanking up and down small streets. There was no violence other than some shouting and sign waving, and I certainly was more comfortable than I was in Saigon during Tet back in the day. You must be having some wonderful experiences!
