Yesterday was the beginning of Songkran and i was soooo fun!!! We bought our water guns on Friday night and then we took a walk around our area just to see if someone had already start 😀 And we found some Thai people that we got into a “war” with and we promised them to come back the next day. We was so excited for Saturday so it was almost hard to sleep!! But we woke up really early and took a walk around the area again and this was like 09.00 in the morning. Around our corner there was 20 kids with really powerful water guns! They had like a little backpack with water and guns that you just need to hold back once and when you drop the handle its starts to spray and its so powerful! We had big water guns but you know the “old style” so we need to pump, pump, pump, and pump 😀 All the kids was pointing their guns to our faces and just sprayed us in the eyes, nose, mouth, ears…everywhere!
After a while we decided to take a walk and shot some locals 😉 But we found this nice group of drunken Thais that gave us whiskey and food and we danced with them for a while and drank and eat and it was so nice 🙂 After that we took a bigger walk and we met so many nice people and everyone was so happy 😀
OOH IT WAS SO FUN!!!!
After a little rest in the hostel we took a tuk-tuk to Silom and we was 5 people + driver and we drove next to group with red shirts and we prepared to shoot at them but hey, from nowhere they throw soooo much water at us!!! We didnt even see if it was a big bucket or some high pressure canon but we got soaked!!! Of course all of us except the driver! But when we arrived to Silom it was CRAZY!!! It was people everywhere!!! We thought it was a lot of people around our area but this was just CRAZY! It was thousands of people throwing ICE water and big trucks throwing water that also played really loud music 😀 We got stuck on a little side street with some Thai guys that was really nice so we drank beer and whiskey with them for a few hours and of course we throw water at people 😉 But the most crazy thing on the street was the tree big fire trucks with the high pressure water!!! Like if it was an unfriendly demonstration and they need to get rid of us! It was sooo powerful and it was also a bit painful when it came into your face!! But WOW it was soooo fun!!!
Today I was walking from Adams hotel to my hostel and that was a 15min walk and I got soaked and white in my face 😉 HAHAH So even if you dont have a water gun they will throw water at you because your are a farang (foreigner). But its so fun everyone is drunk and happy so if you are in near Thailand during Songkran you need to go to Bangkok to Silom to see, I guess, the biggest water war in the world 😛
