Smoke & Bad Smell wafting in over Boeung Tumpon

Post by Username Taken » Sat Dec 22, 2018 7:41 pm

Sitting quietly on my balcony, I noticed what looks like smoke coming in from the south west. The strange smell made me think that maybe there's a wat burning a body.
Looking out the back, the smoky haze much thicker.

Anyone else in this area getting this? @StroppyChops

We've been over in TTP for the evening, but there does seem to be a lingering smell over this way. It's hard to identify over the usual smell of burning rubber, but I think you may well be right UT.

Ministry of Environment Opens New Building
By Khy Sovuthy -January 5, 2016
The Ministry of Environment on Monday inaugurated its palatial new headquarters in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, the result of a state-private land swap.

A Buddhist ceremony to bless the “Morodok Techo Building” in Chaktomuk commune was attended by more than 400 ministry officials and presided over by nine monks.
