    If anything positive came from the pandemic it was not allowing Songkran hopefully the pandemic will fade away but ending Songkran would be wonderful.

    Not for the people for whom the celebration is intended.

    Unfortunately, what was meant to be a civilized religious/cultural time has become somewhat of a prolonged nightmare and has nothing to do with its original intent.

    The "real" Songkran took place this year, at least in P's village. He participated in it as he always does. He visited his grandparents to anoint them (if that's the correct word) with water and his temple for the washing of Buddha effigies.

    I love Songkran - so don't get me wrong, but I was straining my eyes trying to spot a cute boy in the video posted above.

    A few cuties in the crowd, but a lot of the guys looked like they were assembled to celebrate the Annual Song Teaw Drivers Awards Ceremony.

    I spotted one cute boy at "counter 5:27" wearing a t shirt with the words "Malibu 55". He was squirting his gun...mmmm.

    Songkran. The opportunity for non Thai arseholes to parade about in gangs with water guns. The Mujahadeen Water Festival for cissies.

    Receiving a bucket of iced water in the face while traveling back from Jomtien made me prejudiced. Never again did I go to Thailand in the period.

    And yes, it hurts when you are traveling at 30mph.

    My other memory of that ill-timed trip was being confronted by a very young child in Second Road , who pointed his hi-tec pistol in my face. I glared ferociously. "Don't you dare!" I said.

    He did, and received smiles of approbation from his parents instead of a well-deserved smack.

    Little kid dressed as Rambo stood and pointed his gun at us while we were sat in the step in the thick of the Jomtien action but we were unarmed and so he didn't shoot. Delightful fun.

    Several middle easterners blocked the way of a Thai lady pushing a cart on SoI VC so they could better splash her. Assault.

    If one brings the other then better to have neither.
