A taste of Thingyan 2013


Here is a short video I shot at this year’s Thingyan water festival in Mandalay, Myanmar.

The stage, or pandal, visible in the background was built next to the Mandalay Palace moat, from which water was pumped directly and sprayed onto the city streets. This scene was repeated at the many pandals constructed around the palace’s enormous perimeter  — a party like no other.
