April USA Trip–Monday to Thursday

On Monday I said goodbye to staff at the Walsh Building at Maryknoll Lay Missioners and then went into Manhattan where I left Tuesday morning for Chicago, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Phnom Penh where I landed this morning.  My computer is not cooperating, though, so I am going to have to finish this tomorrow.

On the road again….

In two hours I head to the airport and to Maryknoll, New York for a meeting with the Maryknoll Lay Missioners.   I leave here Sunday morning, New York time, and arrive Monday night, New York time.  I had thought I would have a chance to post something more here before I go, but it looks now like I cannot add anything here until I get to New York.

Trinkets to Go

Every Sunday morning this woman sits in the same place selling the same little trinkets made of bronze and ivory and luxury woods.  They are statues of elephants and Buddha, rings, and just an assortment of things.  There are no tourists here but there is always a Khmer person perusing the objects.  Maybe it’s just a nondescript glancing over them while chatting or maybe the person is really interested.  I don’t know.
