Thanks for the photos Duncan. Looks cool, but those countryside mosquitoes really like some fresh barang.
Pig looks cute too. :snorting:

Did Angkor Wat Sunday and Koulen yesterday. Along with what felt like a Million other people. Good spirits but the garbage everywhere was a downer.

The holiday season may be over but my vacation came to an abrupt halt with backbreaking yard work. Our property lines are not defined by walls or fences bit by a row of trees on three sides with the front open except for banana groves.

The primary trees that were planted are called kteum thait, a pernicious and somewhat useless fast growing tree that revels in opening its seedpods and starting another useless generation of offspring. The red tree ants(kh. angkroang, n'kroang in local dialect) ruthlessly gang attack anyone who would destroy their home. Add the tiep trees (custard applies) that have died of old age and one man armed with a chain saw and a kambeut p'keak ( long handled tool with a blade at the end) has his work cut out for him. Time for a beer or three; my 14 year old son can pick up the slack.

Phnom Penh is still quieter than usual today. Some shops are still closed and there's a lot of empty market and roadside stalls.

Lots of traffic on the road to PP yesterday with people crammed into vans and on the back of trucks. Some of those trucks were scary over-loaded with no safety bar at the back in case of an abrupt stop or swerve - sigh, accidents waiting to happen.
[Edit: Just heard that the traffic from northern provinces to PP was still very heavy this morning.]

The garment factories outside PP all looked closed yesterday, but I guess they open today or tomorrow ? Or even later ?

Question for Taabarang: Do you get a noticeable flood of people from town visiting family over the KNY period in your village ? Do they come bearing gifts ?
Just wondering, if there is an influx, how that changes life in the countryside when all the city folk arrive.
