TODAYS HOT SPOTS
Songkran is pretty well everywhere now in Pattaya but the numbers are still on the rise.
THE SONGKRAN CRAZY TRAIN
Today was just another full on, kick arse, pedal to the metal, ride, on the Songkran crazy train and nobody was taking any prisoner’s, well… except the police that is, who arrested some drunken Thai’s on Beach Rd for fighting, some were taken to hospital with head injuries, others were taken to jail, but apart from that we all had a blast.
It seemed that the demand of water and ice exceed the supply today and I saw lots of people trying to get the last of their water from the bottom of their tubs.
Traffic flow is at a snail’s pace in Pattaya as more and more spectators arrive in big cars and 4×4’s adding to the congestion down the narrow Soi’s and restricting the water trucks ability to deliver the much needed water to party goers, water rationing might be next.
TENSIONS ARE ALSO RISING
Tensions were high today and I saw some heated arguments between people who felt they had been treated badly and those who think it’s their right to deliberately harm others.
In past years I have seen Thai’s turn violent against foreigners who take things to far and don’t respect the real meaning of Songkran and end up getting the crap kicked out of them.
Don’ t deliberately hurt others with high pressure water cannons!
WATCH THE VIDEO’S OF THE DAY
It’s a new day tomorrow and we should all start Songkran Pattaya 2016 with a good attitude towards each other and just have fun.
