Water fights with elephants - level 2
People in Thailand celebrated the first day of their New Year. Local people and tourists painted drawings on elephants and then they started water fights. People sprayed water on elephants and elephants sprayed water on people. Some people enjoyed the celebration very much.
During the three day celebration, people also visit the temples and pour water on Buddha statues. This celebration comes at an ideal time because in April it is the hottest month in Thailand. Temperatures can be higher than 40°C. So it is very nice to be cooled in such a cool way.
Interesting words: temple (religious building for Buddhists), cool (make colder).
