Songkran 2011



You gotta love this country!!

Songkran is a 3 day country wide water fight that is quite exhuberently celebrated in Chiang Mai. It is actually the Thai New Year that is being celebrated. Songkran is celebrated every April 13-15th, but it usually starts a couple of days before and lingers on afterward too. If you are in Chiang Mai during Songkran this is a must see and if your actually trying to get anything accomplished during Songkran you might as well forget it.

Our wonderful neighbors the Conserva's took their family and our family all over Chiang Mai in the back of their pick up truck for 3 days to partake in the madness. It is something you truly have to see to believe. I wish America did this!

Enjoy!
