Cooking for my 'temporary husband'

Cooking for my 'temporary husband'

Pictures tell more than a thousand words – so have a look at the visual impression of the week away from it all in the Pailin countryside – north-west Cambodia, sharing house with a good friend. And some pit-stop in Battambang on the long way there and back…

And what does one do in the countryside? Simple:

  • read my books – and finally finishing one
  • cook, wash, clean, arrange the house (being housewife)
  • go food shopping at the market (the only place to get food)
  • smile to the neighbours (no english)
  • drive around with my friend’s scooter (nothing to see)
  • visit the local temple, bar/restaurant,…
  • get a haircut (wanted to get a pedicure, but ‘no have’)
  • Pictures below

    Dag Tony

    Zag gisteren een heel boeiende documentaire over het Internatioaal Rode Khmer Tribunaal in Cambodia.

    Men sprak o.a. Pailin “waar de slachtoffers nog tussen de beulen wonen”. Beulen die vroeger het geld en religie afschaften, maar nu casino’s uitbaten en gaan bidden.
    Met studenten journalistiek die niets weten over het verleden en naar karaoke gaan om zich te ontspannen, en ouderen die alleen maar willen vergeten.

    Soms moeten we even stilstaan bij ernstige dingen; maar voor de rest, geniet van je unieke avonturen.
