Ah, Songkran! You either dear it or loathe it... It tin dismiss live a flake silly, some people larn a flake crazy, it does tending to live a piffling tipsy in addition to (warning!) don't acquit expensive electronic equipment inward the streets unless it's waterproof. Anyone inward a sour mood... remain at home. I know some expats volition happily pass the 13th of Apr watching DVDs in addition to getting rat-arsed. I mean value it helps to convey kids. I also directly believe it helps to convey a alternative upwards truck hence you lot tin dismiss charge upwards alongside big barrels of H2O in addition to function into hostile territory fully armed for battle! And final twelvemonth nosotros bought a Toyota Vigo... hence this twelvemonth nosotros were create for anything!

We drove over to Patong after midday - already quite a queue of traffic coming over the big colina from Phuket Town. I was driving the "first leg" alongside my wife, sis inward constabulary in addition to two kids inward the back. Patong is sure enough THE identify to larn crazy for Songkran inward Phuket. We checked Phuket Town final year, nosotros convey been to the turtle loose ceremony before, but this twelvemonth nosotros simply wanted to ride around, larn wet, throw H2O in addition to convey fun. And YES, it's fun. Humbugs remain home!

Of course, Songkran does convey it's traditions too. We got fresh flowers for our Buddha Shelf, nosotros cleaned the Buddha in addition to King images.. in addition to hence waited for the forenoon pelting to halt earlier heading to Patong. If you lot come upwards for Songkran, it's best to larn to Patong earlier midday. I tin dismiss enjoin you, yesteryear almost 2pm when nosotros were leaving the traffic was backed upwards over the colina in addition to downward the other side, almost a mile of traffic heading into Patong.

I had my trusty Canon Powershot inward a plastic purse sealed alongside tape. Worked pretty good too.

There was a flake besides much H2O ice H2O for my piffling man child in addition to after almost an hr he retired to the security of the cab, but had enough of fun until hence :)

I mean value it is of import to hollo upwards why nosotros are throwing water. This is non a H2O fight, this is non "I'll larn you lot back, you lot bas***d".. the H2O is to symbolise a washing away of the onetime year. H5N1 practiced throw should live accompanied yesteryear a grin in addition to a "Sawatdee Pee Mai" (Happy New Year). I did run across some foreigners who were treating the twenty-four hr current every bit a sort of nation of war - shoot in addition to hide, similar a paintball game.. but most were getting the correct idea. This is such a happy day. It gives me a "smile buzz".
