Today is Songkran, which is the Thai New Year. It's usually a 3 day celebration where people douse each other with water, essentially having a water fight, to "cleanse" each other for the new year. Sadly, I had no such celebrations here in NY, far away from my Thai family and friends. But today was a rainy day which kinda made me smile, in a way I was having my own Songkran in the city. I couldn't do much to celebrate anyway because I'm sick (AGAIN!) so I just said a Buddhist prayer for my family and friends, wishing everyone all the best for the new year.
