How many people in the world know that in Thailand we celebrated our New Year's Day in mid April?? Yes, according to our calendar, not only in Thailand but also in Burma, Cambogia and Laos, April 14th is the beginning of the year! We call it "Songkran" which means the entry of the sun into any sign of the Zodiac. From 13th to 15th are regularly natinal holidays. As tradition, people go home to celebrate with their family. We have a partucular and funny festival. Everywhere people splash water to each other, no one minds to get wet. Tourists too enjoy to play with the Thai's. It's really a pleasure as water helps cooling down the temperature (it's the hottest month of the year).
At Rome, the abbassy of Thailand certainly set up a celebration for Thai people in Italy. This year, it's quite special for me because a Uni friend of mine came to visit Italy. I and other 3 Uni friends (who stay in Itlay for work, another one for family like me and the last one for a study) all met at Milan. We did had a great day on the Songkran Day.
Before leaving, I just wanna show our gorgeous orchid flower. This's the 1st time we reached out to save an orchid plant!
HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE !!!
