Sabaidee Pee Mai (Happy Lao New Year or Songkran) to those of you that are celebrating the Lao New Year. Today is officially the start of Boun Pee Mai from April 14-16 in Laos.
I have been told by the relatives they are actually taking an entire week to celebrate the Lao New Year, starting since Monday or sooner for those that love to party. Even the Vientiane Times is taking a week off and no new news for this week. Too bad we are not in Laos to enjoy a week of celebration but then again I don’t know if many of us can handle the hot and humid weather of Laos.
