I’m really enjoying being in the real world as if I’ve just arrived, so I don’t intend on updating this blog again for the time being. I’m sure I will at some point, so feel free to check back again in a week, month, year, or whenever you think of it. If you’d like to befriend me on Facebook, search: Nathaniel Try. Love your life: it’s happening now!
This is the only photo that seems to have emerged after the week I just spent in Chiang Mai for Songkran (Thai New Year festival).
Across many countries in South East Asia, to celebrate the end of the dry season, for several days in every place, people take to the streets to splash water on others.
The festival seems dreamlike and it’s almost impossible to believe what is happening is reality.
For a festival of this nature - in which people can indiscriminately spatter strangers with water - to take place with as few reported problems occurring as there are, is a true testament to the goodheartedness and openness of most people in Thailand.
Chiang Mai is the most famous place in the country to experience the festival.
