    I was in Luang Prabang for the New Years celebration and figured it be a great time to get the bike washed.

    Ha ha! And here I thought that only Songkran was mad only in Thailand and that in Laos it is celebrated in a more "subdued" and "traditional" fashion. Guess I was mistaken!

    I bet you were tempted to stop and have some words with that DIKC who chucked the ice at you :take-that:

    Ride On!

    Top video. I missed all the fun this year in a very sedate VN. Greatly enjoyed my Songkran days ringing wet in Chiang Mai.
    LOVE that bike.....takes me back!

    Nice video, a lot of westerners playing Songkran in Luang Prabang.
    Here in Khon Kaen it was as usually totally packed and one big party (until late at night). I saw one guy on a big sports bike and dressed in full-leather and full-face helmet.... he was at least "not amused" by all the water people were throwing over him.

    Super vdo. So LPQ now is not unlike Chiang Mai's water wars.
    Sad about the idiot throwing ice, but there's always a few around.

    I had thought about going back and having a few words with the idiot throwing the ice but why ruin a great day over one jerk.
