Right now it is Songkran, the Thai new year. Also known as the Water Festival, it consists of drenching every person with buckets of water, nailing them with super soakers, or lobbing water baloons around. It is literally impossible to stay dry if you go outside. The tempurature here is brutally hot, so the water feels great, but it makes it dangerous for me to bring my camera out. I saw some people with good bags around thiers, screwed into the lens filter, and may try that today with the camera on an auto mode. The festival goes on until the 15th, and I dont leave until the 18th, so I may zip out to one of the surrounding towns for a few days at the end.
I will try to post pictures if i can get them. Otherwise look here to see a few: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rovinglight/422717101/
