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.

The Unexpected: 

Erin Hardin’s “A Small Distraction”
