Canadian journalist Nelson Rand is home after being shot three times during Bangkok’s violent protests this May.

“Ironically, my worst wound right now is not from a bullet, but from a ride to the hospital,” Rand said in a phone interview Wednesday.

When a stranger drove him to the hospital on a motorcycle after he was shot, Rand’s foot dragged along the pavement and was cut to the bone. “Obviously, I can’t complain about that,” he said.

Rand was scheduled to speak about his experiences at the University of B.C. on Wednesday night.

He has a master’s degree from the university.
