Out and About

I often post about specific events but I thought I would try to take photos every now ans then which are everyday sights for me. often when I an driving I will see interesting thing but may not have my camera with me. Today I was picking up Phoebe who had beenĀ  helping her friend in her coffee shop.

Today my route was through a busy market street preparing for Khmer New Year so there were loads of fruit and flower sellers, with bananas and little ornamental offerings made of banana leaves and incense. These will be offerings in the home or pagoda tomorrow.

I then have to drive along an open very stinky black canal. I was struck by the contrast of the beautiful flowers on the tree and then the black murky water below.

beauty and rubbish

All along the canal were houses and washing and food being left out to dry and rubbish.
