April 13, 2016 marked the first day of Songkran, Thailand’s annual New Year festivities. Thais celebrate the holiday by LITERALLY washing away their misfortunes from the past year — dousing friends, family and passerby with supersoakers and buckets of ice cold water. With 100 degree temps in Bangkok this week, we don’t think anyone will mind 😉 Sawasdee Pee Mai! 🎉 (= Happy New Year!)
