Some say there are three seasons in Cambodia – hot, rainy and cool. Others will say there are two – rainy and dry; it’s hot all year round!
Right now it’s rainy season. This year we’ve been blessed with a true rainy season. We’re thankful for the rain for obvious reasons. We’re thankful for the rainwater that is the source of water for our teammates in the village. We’re thankful for the gloomy sky that brings relief from the scorching sun.
However the joys of rain come with some pitfalls. The frequent downpour causes the sewage drains to back up, causing floods. Wish we could capture the special odor of sewage water flooded on the streets and in one’s home but you’ll have to come visit in person for that.
Thankfully, when the kids had to take off their shoes and walk barefoot in the water to get into the house, they didn’t bat an eye. It’s just another ordinary adventure here in Cambodia!
