Happy New Year!

It's Songkran Festival in Thailand, the traditional Thai New Year and the biggest holiday of the year, when many people who live in Bangkok return to their homes in other provinces or head out of town on vacation.  Those that stay in the city will grab a squirt gun and take to the streets for one giant celebratory water fight.  If you want to stay dry longer, I suggest hopping in a cab.  But even the taxi will be "blessed" with water as you drive through the streets.
