Traditionally, Thai people anoint statues of the Buddha with holy water at new year, but nowadays everyone goes crazy soaking people with hosepipes, buckets of water and plastic water guns. As an elderly respected male, with grey hair as a bonus, the first few revellers just poured warm water gently over my shoulders. Then when I was wet through, I was seen as fair game and a preferred target. Luckily my camera was in a waterproof case, inside a waterproof bag.
