Wet Good Bye’s

IMAG2041Today was my last day in Burma and its the day of the water festival.

Water festival is a day when people run around shooting each other with water guns. Companies and the government join the fun using fire hoses to suck water out of the rivers and lakes to blast the crowd.

Water represents purification in most asian cultures. Today represent the day when everyone rinsed so that tomorrow they can start fresh.

The symbolism is not lost on me. Tomorrow I return to the States may I carry this cleansing home with me and not let it slip away.
