location: chiang mai, thailand

it is the first day of the inthakin festival – the chiang mai buddhist celebration to welcome the rainy season. this annual celebration takes place at wat chendi luang – one of chiang mai’s most celebrated wats.

students from all the schools in chiang mai gather to march in a two-hour procession around the whole town. though the weather was wet, there was a definite spiritual-communal aura in the air. it is inthakin, after all.
