    My first Songkran was in the early 70's. We took a drive to Samut Prakan which, from what I saw, was mostly country back then. I was told it was Songkran, but no one told me about all the water throwing. It was quite a surprise!

    I like those old videos, too, and thank you for sharing, Billy. They give perspective to the present time.
