This happens to be Thai New Year (2045 or something like that) and it's a water festival. This gives you the right to douse, throw bukets of water, spray people with a hose or a water pistol. If you don't want to get wet stay inside! This was one of my excuse's to not leave the island on 10th like I was supposed to! I'd show you pictures but no waterproof camera, my phone almost didn't make it thru the day.
