Our Burmese adventure started in Yangon and it was the beginning of the New Year. It is customary to have water placed over the head to cleanse the soul for the start of a new year. The Burmese have now taken this ritual to the extreme. I’m not sure whether it is for fun or they have a lot of sins to wash away. People load themselves in trucks and take turns visiting these stages placed around town. There is loud music pumpling out this consistent rap beat to which everyone is dancing to. The people on stage have various means of delivering water ranging from water pistols to water canons. There is not a dry person around but everyone is having a great time. I said to the guide that you Burmese are crazy-he just laughed!
