Songkran ( Thai New Year ) 2012
Songkran is already into it’s third day and it decidedly started with a shout instead of a whimper. Although the war has just begun major battles for control are taking place just about everywhere from the smallest soi’s to the large prominent roads dissecting town. Beach road is awash ( literally ) with thousands of revelers and soi’s 7 & 8 are hotly contested property. The merchants selling water guns, powder, water and ice are making a killing as supplies are often running low and new recruits are showing up by the hour.
Songkran 2012 has been a blast so far and it’s an unbelievable sight to see so many smiling people laughing and having fun with friends and complete strangers…Okay, enough of the words. Here are some pics from the first 2 days. I’m still scoping out places to hide with the camera so much more and better are on the way, and don’t forget there will definitely be a Women of Songkran post before this is all over. Enjoy!
