...blog post 543 years from the future!
Songkran mayhem on the streets. Didn't have the cajones to take camera out into the crazyness (which may seem a surprise after the underwater photography malarkey of previous post - recent budgetary review has certainly instilled a hitherto unknown financial prudence. Basically a food versus camera choice!) So we stole this shot from the Bangkok Post. Breakin' the laaaw!
So, the 15th marks the first day of the Thai new year proper. The Buddhist Era calendar being 543 years ahead of the ol' Christian one (Maybe mentioned in previous wedding post(s)? Our own official wedding date is now 31-10-2550). Means we get to celebrate the 3rd new year of our R.T.W. (including the Chinese one). Any excuse accepted around here for a partay!
Right then, we're aff the marra. Shooting back over to Koh Samed for some R&R, after all recent strenuous, err, R&R. Last few days in Thailand, so we're gonna rip the shorts reet aff the beachlife.
Trust us, things will change big-time in approximately 2 weeks, when we hit S.America. No. More. Slacking.
All our love,
Steve & Sarah
