Songran, Thai New Year's Day Festival, is a crazy festival.
People shooting water to everybody including to inside of the buses.

You have to be very careful. The water comes from everywhere.
this tradition is very popular in N part of Thailand. Usually it is not so bad in BKK. But it becomes Chaos in Kaosan area.

A big parade is held.

After elephants pass, they leave a lot of dropping.

A lady with many dogs. She, they?, also enjoys watching the parade.

Many fountains are set in the middle of the main road.
The illumination at night is really beautiful.

A small Buddha is set near the park.
People throw water to the Buddha "gently".
I wish Thai people respect foreigners as she does.
