…. This is the traditional greeting in Thai for “Happy New Year”.
Today is the second day of Songkran (to read all about this festival go to Jo’s own website http://manningtreearchive.com/2014/04/14/songkran-the-spirit-of-the-moment/) which we spent largely at the Worldtrade Center. After some shopping, a relaxing footmassage and a light lunch, we went outside to watch the merryment and good-natured waterfights of hundreds of people, getting splashed with water occasionally as well.
It is a very enjoyable time to be back in Bangkok right now. With the Thai New Year starting tomorrow and Songkran (The Water Festival) as well, the country is geared for a few days of festivities. We too joined some of our friends in the celebrations with a most sumptuous lunch at the famous “Lord Jim’s’ Restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok Hotel. More about this in my next post.
Returning back to our home-from-home The Atrium Bangkok Hotel, we walked into our suite adorned with beautiful pink and white roses – courtesy “of the Management” Thank you, Khun Miguel.
