That’s right! It’s New Year here in SE Asia. In Thailand, it’s called Songkran. What a celebration!!
I have been doused with bucket upon bucket of water while walking and/or riding my motorbike through town (and outside of town!) Pai is reveling in soaking each other, including the cops and the tourists!
Parade’s, fireworks and music. All day and all night for three days. It’s easy to enjoy the energy!!
Meanwhile, I’m staying well outside of the fray in a luscious “resort” on the Pai River, complete with a beautiful swimming pool.
I completed my Thai massage training yesterday, and now I’m savoring my last two days of leisure before pointing my motorbike toward home on Sunday. I’m ready.
