Young Thai Guy Gets Hosed With Water For Quick Cleansing During Songkran - Bangkok, Thailand - Daily Travel Photos
(Bangkok, Thailand)

A young Thai guy gets a hose-full of cleansing water during Songkran water festival.

I try to keep it classy around this small photographic corner of the internet but I liked the action in this photo too much to waste it due to some silly t-shirt's text. What would normally receive an awful lot of unwanted attention in say, America, barely manages to turn a head in Thailand where shirts like this are rather unfortunately common. The worst of the bunch was a shirt I saw the other day that read: "F--- You, You F------ F---!"

Thank you, Caroline! It's actually more exhausting than you think. Frankly, I'd love to split my life into half traveling and half, having a permanent home somewhere. Hopefully these next few years will see me based out of somewhere warm to follow this path!
