Megan Carr’s “Reflections of a Thai Preteen”
Captured here is the emotions of a Thai preteen teetering between the innocence of youth and the social norms of Thai womanhood. Taken during the preparation of Thai Day at my school.
Caitlin Elder’s “Watching the monks chant during Loi Krathong in Chiang Mai”
Anika Goyal’s “Festive and Fun”
My first month at site we celebrated Songkran, Thai New Year. During the day we made merit to the elderly at the wat. Then, in the evening my counterparts showed me where the party was at in Sukhothai city. This holiday is celebrated with water and so that is what we did. Water guns, foam, loud music, and thousands of dancing Thai people makes for a great New Year’s celebration.
