How's your New Year ?

Postby Anchor Moy » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:27 pm

Sitting here sweating as night falls while waves of sound, monks' chanting, surrounds me 360 degrees. Ethereal echoes are coming out of the darkness and the sound is everywhere. It is taking up all the space and there is no other sound in the sky. Suddenly the chanting stops and there is a dead silence.

It must be time for another beer.
Happy New Year all. :beer3:

Partying at my uncle's, just drinking beer and wine. Grilled chicken and American beef are on the menu. I think I'm doing New year's at my cousin's work tomorrow. I'm hot, always hot.

Food poisoning! Wouldn't be right to have an uneventful holiday :) At least this bed is comfortable.

Whenever I was in Cambodia I would make my own food. Thought taking a chance eating out yesterday would be okay but so far that hasn't worked out.

To be fair though, my last trip to the U.S. also got me food poisoning last year.

I don't know how to cook my own food, my house still doesn't have sugar. All I have is beer and dryish beef.

It's quiet in the outskirts of the capital. I'm glad the main part of the family is from Chhba Ampul so there's no reason for an exodus to some remote hometown. Some of the family do come from a remote village near Oudong, it's not far from the city (40 km?) but is across the Tonle Sap and doesn't have any roads that connect to anywhere useful.I don't like spending time in the sticks.
