Finally, after over a month living out of a suitcase, we can unpack....
There has been a meme going round which I have been tagged for....it's the one where you open your forth photo album and then post the fourth picture in it so I leave you with this photograph of Thai's celebrating Songkran.
The Thai New Year, also known as Songkran, is celebrated every year from the 13th to the 15th of April and is the time when Thai people return home to visit family and to pay respect to the elders around the neighbourhood. Songkran is a time for cleaning and renewal and water is very heavily associated with it. Originally pouring a small amount of water on other people's hands was done as a sign of respect but now the most obvious celebration of Songkran is the throwing of water - people actually roam the streets with bowls of water, water pistols or even a garden hose, and drench each other and everyone else...it's bonkers...the entire city turns into one big waterfight!!
Since we will be moving house tomorrow I'm not sure when I'll be able to blog next....it doesn't have internet access at the moment but we will be getting it up and running....please bare with me :-)
