  1. Well after 20+ Songkran's I have to admit to not doing much.
    No riding.
    For 2 afternoons I popped down to the Kafe / Mr Mechanic to hang out with the gang, eat, drink & be merry.
    Here's a few happy snaps from Mr Mechanics & The Kafe

    MR MECHANIC
    Mr Mechanic is forever generous to staff & customers, putting on free food & drink.

    The night rolled on & it was still full steam ahead at 8PM, both nights

    I remember the good ol days where you got thumped for throwing water after dark! But nowadays they seem to start later, 2PM+ then get right into it until they are exhausted &/or drunk, into the night!

    The only downer I thought were the red shirts parading around town with photos of the dead & injured in Bangkok

    Now some of you other guys must have some better, more cultural Songkran photos than me, so how about adding them to this thread?
    Please

  2. Nice pix, David.

    I experienced Songkran in CM, ten years ago. It was an all out water war...and great fun.

    In Pattaya, this year the big day for Songkran is on the the last day, the 19th, except for the farang idiots on Beach Rd which carry the celebration to excess every day.
    I'll post pix of my experience on the 19th...and unlike last year when my camera died from aqua phobia, I've a new Canon D-10 waterproof camera.

    I've never experienced rain during Songkran and it's been raining here the last few days. It's only water, but will some participants be carrying umbrellas, protecting their hair and watergun? Time will tell and I'll know on the 19th ;-)
