We’ve got it…
How many rolls of tape do you think it took to secure a van load of vegetables for the trip to Phnom Penh? I would think there would be a cheaper, more efficient way keep the load together but maybe it’s the best, most reliable way they have found and the price of tape is just the cost of doing business.
Take-away for Supper
The pork is ready and the delivery man is waiting.
It’s part of the job…
As in so many other cities around the world, the Covid pandemic created an army of delivery people, perfect employment–except for the low income!–in a society that is built on motorcycles. This evening a heavy downpour was drenching Phnom Penh, making it more difficult for this driver to confirm his delivery destination.
Today I decided (sadly) that it is time to start carrying my rain poncho in my bike basket again. The rainy season is on time and we’re starting to get both daytime showers and heavier rains at night.
A different Buddha?
This is one of many Buddhas at Wat Tuek Thla in Phnom Penh. Many Buddha images are common in the wats but this large image is a bit distinctive because the facial features don’t portray the normal visage.
The sun is not yet up and your entree at a swank upscale restaurant tonight might still be in a tub at this Phnom Penh wet market.
Musica Felice is one of the artistic treasures of Cambodia. Ms. Miwako Fujiwara, a most talented professional musician, is also an amazing organizer and she combines those two gifts in producing Musica Felice concerts to benefit deserving NGOs and organizations (such as the Deaf Development Programme). Miwako has three or four concerts a year in the Sofitel Hotel and they are always impressive performances. This photo is from today’s performance with presenting music from Beethoven to Queen.
