A CRAZY DAY IN CHIANG MAI
Today Mr. Gluzicki sets out to discover Chiang Mai in Thailand. Upon leaving the airport, he is welcomed with a splash! It is Songkran, the celebration of the Buddhist New Year, where the city's streets are transformed into a battlefield for a giant water fight.
Everyone is invited to throw water at everyone else. Water squirts in all directions, soaking Mr. Gluzicki and his guide, Tam, from head to toe. Finally, armed with an enormous water gun, Mr. Gluzicki retaliates, joining in the festivities and taking on the very moist masses.
Streets are jammed with cars, kids scattered everywhere, their water buckets in hand, ready to get wet!
