Happy New Year, Thai Style

Happy New Year, Thai Style
Hui-Chen are walking around in shorts and t-shirts, our wallets and other valuables wrapped in plastic bags.  My notebook computer is carefully shrouded in plastic as we make our way cautiously down the street to the local bar.  What is our problem?
We don’t want to get wet!

Thais are driving around with people in the back of pickup trucks, bailing water out on unsuspecting victims.  As you drive by on a motorcycle, you can expect to get hosed down by children, egged on by their parents.  Its both fun and uncomfortable at the same time, as the streets are literally soaked with water making them dangerous (we already had our front wheel drift out from underneath us when trying to stop).  Later today we are going to meet with our good friend to dish out some payback!  I will try to get some photos but for now, the Nikon is safely in our hotel room in its case.
