To celebrate the new year, the entire Thai population (plus farangs) engage in a massive week-long alcohol-fueled waterfight in which everything and everyone is a target.
Here on Koh Tao, Songkran only lasts a day. The rain poured relentlessly, the taxi-drivers filled their water guns with ice water, and you had several layers of Burmese face paste smeared over you and your clothes.
You decided to take a gamble and bring your camera out with you wrapped quite masterfully in two clear plastic bags, the wrapping from a loaf of bread, three elastic bands and half a roll of sellotape. Who needs expensive underwater housings?
More Koh Tao posts coming soon!
