Songkran – Thai New Year

Here is the aftermath of the second night of Songkran, which we spent on Silom Road:

Songkran is Thai New Year, and most of the country turns into one giant water fight that lasts for 3 days.  People also spread a chalky paste on each other’s faces to protect from evil spirits.

I really wish I could have taken my camera out to capture some of the insanity, but I’ve already had my laptop die on this trip and I didn’t want my camera to be next.  However, here’s a video of what we experienced before this picture was taken:Songkran on Silom Road, 2009
