Thai New Year (Songkran)
Those photos were shot in Chiang Mai (Thailand) in April 2005.
I had the chance to be in Chiang Mai during Songkran, the Thai New Year (April 13th through the following week-end). During this holidays period, a Thai tradition consists in throwing copious amounts of water to others as a way to wish a happy new year. Chiang Mai's old defensive moat provide a endless source of water for the occasion.
There is a good and detailed description and explanation of Songkran here: www.flickr.com/photos/toni_uni/sets/72157604571404567
