Happy Songkran! April 13 to 16 is Songkran Festival here in Thailand, a time to celebrate Thai New Years. During this time, people all over Thailand will be returning to their hometowns to pay respects to their elders and make merit at local temples. And famously, people celebrate by having huge water fights like the one pictured above! (Kind of looks similar to the Armenian holiday Varvatar, no?)

It’s the hottest time of the year here on Thailand so I am looking forward to celebrating with my host family. We’re even going on a special day trip to the beach yay!
