Holiday time in Cambodia

Well, it’s still holiday time in Cambodia.

2 Weeks ago we had Christmas.

Last week we had New Years.

Today (Thursday) is Victory over Genocide Day.  Its the day the Vietnamese liberated Phnom Penh from the grips of the Khmer Rouge.   Siem Reap was liberated on 10 January.  The high school here is named 10 January 1979 after the date of liberation.

There won’t be a lot of holidays here for a while after this.  The next major one is in April.  Khmer New Years.

I’m actually sitting here watching the GMAC Bowl.  Who would have thought that Troy and Central Michigan would have been the best bowl game.

After this the Clipps/Lakers are on.

Back to work tomorrow.
