READING COMPREHENSION ( 10 pts)
The weather in Thailand is very hot in spring but if you are visiting that country in April, it might be a good idea to take an umbrella and a raincoat with you. Every year on 13 April, which is New Year in Thailand, there is a water throwing festival. Young people run or drive through the street with buckets full of water or enormous water-guns and throw water at anybody they see. So, if you don’t want to get wet, don’t stand in the street. Participants must follow three important rules. Firstly, they mustn’t throw water at old people. Secondly, they mustn’t touch people. Thirdly, they must throw at car drivers.
