We were fortunate to be in Thailand for their new year celebrations, Songkran. Three days of bringing in the new year with several traditions, but the one that is most popular is drenching each other with water. On the last day we went to Si Lom. There we found a street 3 lanes wide in each direction that had been closed and filled with people with water guns walking and drenching each other. People would line up on the sidewalk to sell food and barrels of ice cold water to refill the water guns.
We walked for about an hour and cooled off getting water thrown at us, and watched everyone water fight each other. What a great experience
