Pre-Boun Pi Mai Lao

Pre-Boun Pi Mai Lao

My relatives in Luang Prabang were telling me about how the kids in the neighborhood were getting excited about celebrating Boun Pi Mai Lao. Many school children were throwing or splashing water during lunch break and right after school as early as a week ahead of the Lao New Year dates.

I was in Luang Prabang a few days ahead of Lao New Year (Songkran) and were told by my relatives to protect my gears (phone and camera) while walking around town by noon time. In the morning it is quite safe, but by lunch time, certain spots around town are packed with elementary, middle school, and high school kids doing their pre-new year celebration and perfecting their water throwing or splashing skills.
