Happy New Year!

13 Apr

The heat here has been pretty intense. Almost debilitating. One of the ladies we met here says that if you aren’t careful the sun can make you go crazy. She must be correct. Why? Because how else do you explain Songkran, which is the Thai New Year celebration. Songkran is a time where people just lose their minds for a few days. Its supposed to be a time to spend time with family and eat and exchange gifts, kind of like Thanksgiving and Christmas all in one. That doesnt sound to crazy right? Well its not, but the huge water fight and street party that erupts sometime in between is very much crazy. You can look up all the crazy videos on YouTube for yourself, but below is a link to a short video.

See what I mean? The heat can make you crazy.
