Pictures from Bangkok during one of the world’s craziest celebrations.
When we were in Thailand with the boys we – completely by chance – happened to spend our final two days in Bangkok while their huge Songkran festival was occurring. The city – the country! – pretty much shuts down and streets turn into a big carnival of water fights, face smeering, food, drink and more water fights.
We bought Samuel a water gun and here he is getting comfortable with it.
Some kids looking for someone to GET!
There are water-sellers that set up station at just about every street corner. They charge about a dollar for ice cold water – and I mean cold – for the guns and balloons and buckets, but they were often so pleased with Samuel’s spirit that we rarely paid anything.
Samuel getting some lessons.
Kipling had a pretty good time but by the end he’d gotten soaked one too many times with that frigid water.
End on a high note: banana crepes!
