Furious five on second day of Songkran 2

Songkran 2012 in Bangkok!

The Thai new year celebration festival, also known as Songkran, was actually the main event I wanted to attend during my 1 year trip. I’ve planned my trips and time just in order to participate in this. And boy was it soooooooooo worth it. The Songkran festival is actually held in multiple other countries during different times. But the idea is the same, the people throw water on eachother in order “cleanse” them for the new year. The tradition started out by people pouring water over Buddha statues and then using this holy water to bless family members and friends....
