Party like it's Makha Bucha 2017 in Thailand!

Last weekend was a long one due to Makha Bucha Day. I won't do the holiday justice, so you'll need to follow the link if you're curious as to why I had off on Monday. But had off I did, so we rented a motorbike and hit the road for western Thailand.

On the way and in the middle of nowhere, we came across this group partying in the middle of the road. No kidding.

Note the traffic cop on the right of the frame, making sure the sugar cane trucks and other traffic don't run over the revelers as they do whatever it is they are doing.

Interesting point: This is supposed to be a "dry" holiday. No one told these people, apparently. Party on, Thais! Party on.
