In the Buddhist calendar, we are beginning the year of the rabbit...2555!  On April 14, as we were driving back to Thailand from Cambodia, the festivals were beginning.  Also known as the 'water festival', Sangkran is one of the biggest celebrations in Thailand.  The throwing of water on each other signifies cleansing for the new year.  In Bangkok, areas of the city were packed with soaking wet people as the celebrations took place.  They can last from 3 days up to a week and everyone has a lot of fun.
