Greetings… The surgeon said that I should be able to fly back to Phnom Penh on Friday or Saturday but that is because I am supposed to fly to the United States on Sunday! That is not a good arrangement but this unexpected surgery has complicated things. The photo is the incision on my side and the drain hole underneath it.
While it’s still the beginning of the year, it might be useful to look at Pope Francis’ list of new year resolutions. It could give us some ideas.
When I got my first passport in 1983 it had, I think, 40 pages and cost $15. After ten years when I got a new one, it cost $30. Then the third one was $80 or $90 and had only half the pages. Now this latest announcement from the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh raises the cost to $130! Ouch!
